Dental Implants Recovery

It’s important to us at our Aliso Viejo dental implants facility that you get a wonderful smile you’ll enjoy for the rest of your life. It’s very important that we maintain the kind of transparency that’s given us a good reputation.

That’s why we’ve put together some tips on recovery after your surgery.

First off, it’s important that you understand how to follow some simple tips on the first day after you’ve had a dental implant operation. You’re going to notice some gauze pads that have been placed over the area. For about an hour or so afterwards you can bite down gently on these.

There’s no need to change them unless the bleeding becomes uncontrolled.

We like to stress to our valuable patients they should try and leave the surgical area alone for 24-hour period. We even suggest that it’s a good idea to stay away from mouthwash for that first a day. However, it is usually safe to brush your other teeth as long as you avoid the surgical area completely.

Patience and Dental Implants Recovery

We also want to tell everyone that a little patience goes a long way during this healing process. It won’t be long after you’ve had this surgery before you can return to your normal routines.

However, it’s very important that you keep your mouth clean as you heal. For the first day, you should try and stay away from strenuous sports and other types of physical activity. Any kind of lifting or bending can actually cause swelling so we suggest you take it easy for 24 hours and rest.

A Little Bleeding

You might find there’s a little bleeding after your surgery. The best thing here is a saltwater mix that you can rinse slightly with but not until 24 hours after your operation. Keep in mind that any kind of persistent bleeding is a red flag that you’ll need to take care of immediately.

We understand how a missing tooth can rattle your confidence. At Dental Aesthetics & Wellness Center we’re always looking towards the latest innovations and dental implant surgery to make sure you can have a beautiful smile and a boost in self-esteem.


We want to be with you through every part of the procedure from the initial consultation through implant surgery and into recovery afterwards.

Our number one priority is making sure that each and every one of our Aliso Viejo dental implants procedures is successful.
