Mature Female Pointing At TeethDental implants have become increasingly popular for those who have loose or missing teeth. Because they are permanently secured into the jawbone, they provide men and women with a secure smile and completely restored oral function.

When Dr. Kissel meets with prospective dental implants patients, he always fully explains what they should expect of the procedure from start to finish. The recovery period after dental implants placement is one area that he finds patients have the most questions about—particularly regarding swelling. After all, you’ll want to get back to your normal daily routine as soon as possible—preferably without swollen cheeks.

Dr. Kissel values patient education, which is why we’re taking time in this blog to answer the question of swelling and discuss the entire recovery process after your dental implants are placed, so keep reading!

More About Dental Implants

Dental implants are an amazing tooth-replacement system and one that is preferred by most periodontists and other dental professionals because of the number of benefits they provide. If you have severely decayed or diseased teeth, loose teeth, or you’re missing teeth, dental implants can completely restore your oral function and give you a natural-looking smile, too.

Dental implants are made from a biocompatible material and are surgically placed directly into your jawbone where they function like natural tooth roots would, by stimulating the jawbone to keep it healthy and strong. Once the implants have been placed and have fully fused to your jawbone, a permanent set of natural-looking tooth crowns will be placed on top.

This permanent system gives patients the ability to eat and chew their favorite foods without fear or concern that they’ll break a tooth, or their teeth will slip and slide around their mouths like dentures do.

Dr. Kissel’s Approach to Dental Implant Surgery

To place dental implants, Dr. Kissel uses microsurgery techniques that make the surgery and recovery period easier and faster. These advanced techniques are performed under a microscope using micro-instruments, which allow Dr. Kissel to make smaller incisions and sometimes avoid stitches at the surgical sites. He is also able to place dental implants while avoiding sensitive tissues, muscles, and nerves, and only targets the small areas where the dental implants will be placed. This allows his patients to return to their normal daily activities without noticeable changes to their gums, as the surrounding gum tissue will appear normal immediately after surgery.

Recovering After Dental Implants Surgery

Thanks to Dr. Kissel’s commitment to giving every patient with the best possible experience by using advanced techniques and technologies, he is able to provide patients with an easier recovery period after dental implants surgery. When compared to traditional dental implants methods, his microsurgery techniques offer many benefits to his patients, including:

  • Improved comfort
  • Extreme precision
  • Improved aesthetics
  • Quick recovery

Microsurgery also means that Dr. Kissel’s patients will have no swelling or excessive bleeding after their dental implants procedure. That means that you’ll look normal and have a beautiful smile as soon as your surgery is complete.
