As you recover from your dental implants procedure, it can be helpful to understand what to expect to give you peace of mind and ensure you are healing properly. While every patient’s recovery varies slightly, it is normal to experience some degree of tenderness, swelling, and discomfort. Dr. John Beckwith will prescribe medication to control any pain you have, as well as instruct you on after-care to help limit swelling and prevent infection. As your implant site continues to heal, your symptoms should gradually fade.
