In this comprehensive guide, we’ll share invaluable tips on post-treatment care for your dental implants and highlight why Ten Dental is your top choice for implant treatments in South West London.


Why choose Ten Dental for your dental implants?

Before delving into the specifics of dental implant care, let’s take a moment to understand why Ten Dental stands out as a trusted provider in the South West London area.

Here’s our expert advice about how to care for your new dental implants once they’ve been placed:


Follow post-procedure guidelines

After undergoing dental implant surgery at Ten Dental, our team provides you with detailed post-procedure guidelines. It is crucial to follow these instructions diligently to promote proper healing and minimise the risk of complications. These guidelines typically include information on managing pain, swelling, and any potential discomfort you may experience in the days following the procedure.


Maintain excellent oral hygiene

One of the key factors in ensuring the longevity of your dental implants is maintaining excellent oral hygiene. Regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing with an antimicrobial mouthwash help prevent plaque buildup around the implant site. At Ten Dental, our team emphasises the importance of a customised oral hygiene routine tailored to your specific needs, ensuring that your implants remain in pristine condition.


Visit us for regular examinations 

Scheduled follow-up appointments with our skilled dentists are crucial for monitoring the progress of your dental implants. These regular check-ups allow us to detect any potential issues early on and address them proactively. 


At Ten Dental, we prioritise patient care, providing comprehensive examinations and personalised advice to ensure the continued success of your dental implants.


Be mindful of your dietary choices

While dental implants are durable, it’s essential to be mindful of your dietary choices, especially during the initial healing phase. Avoid overly hard or sticky foods that could exert excessive pressure on the implants or potentially damage them. Our team at Ten Dental will provide you with dietary guidelines to follow, ensuring a smooth recovery process.


Kick your bad habits

If you’re serious about maintaining the integrity of your dental implants, it’s time to kick bad habits such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Both these habits can compromise the healing process and increase the risk of implant failure. 

At Ten Dental, we offer support and resources to help you quit these habits, promoting overall health and the success of your dental implants.


Protect your investment! 

Dental implants are a significant investment in both time and resources. To protect this investment, consider wearing a mouthguard during activities that pose a risk of oral injury, such as sports or grinding your teeth at night. Our team at Ten Dental can provide you with custom mouthguards for added protection.
