Edema after implantation of teeth how to remove

At present, dental implantation isa fairly common procedure among patients of dental clinics. An artificial tooth root is called an implant. Accordingly, implantation of teeth is the introduction of an artificial root into the jaw bone at the place where the real tooth was previously located. Implantation of teeth is considered one of the most advanced ways to restore lost for some reason a tooth or several teeth. In comparison with removable prosthetics, implantation has a number of undeniable advantages.

Complications and consequences of implantation

Implantation of teeth or as it is calleddental implantation, is a rather complex and multi-stage operation, the successful outcome of which depends both on the qualification of the doctor and on the patient himself. But still, dental implant surgery requires surgical intervention, and, like any surgical intervention, implantation has its complications and can lead to certain consequences.

And so after implantation, the patient may experience the following complications and consequences:

  • Bruises and bruises, which usually appear on the 2nd-3rd day and last for several days;
  • Edema after implantation of teeth;
  • Abundant salivary secretion with blood impurities;
  • Aching strong pain, lasting 1-2 days after the operation.

Of course, these consequences are not dangerous ifin time and correctly react. The most frequent and, in some cases, dangerous complication is edema after implantation of teeth. The size and soreness of the edema depends on the individual characteristics of the person, as well as on the correctness of the operation.

The appearance of edema after the implantation surgeryteeth is a completely natural reaction of the body to foreign invasion of tissue. In most cases, such edema occurs after a few (2-3) hours after implantation, and with a stable and normal healing process, it lasts about 5-7 days. Its peak of development this swelling reaches approximately on the third day of its course. However, with timely and correct measures, the duration of this period can be reduced to a minimum. But in some cases, edema may not pass a sufficiently long time and at the same time be accompanied by characteristic blue spots. In such a situation, one can speak of the development of an inflammatory process in the place of implantation.

How to act when there is swelling

If there is a swelling after implantation of the teeth, it should be as soon as possible to start getting rid of it.

As a good remedy for swellingpossible to use cold. It is enough only to attach to the place of implantation the pieces of ice put in a package. Such a compress should be done regularly within 36 hours after implantation. The ice pack should be kept at the implantation site for 30 minutes, after which a break takes place for 15-20 minutes.

The use of cold is not the only wayRemove swelling after implantation of teeth. To reduce edema is also recommended within a week after surgery to sleep on a high pillow. Observance of this regime will contribute to the outflow of blood, and hence to the reduction of edema.

Also important is the warningdevelopment of inflammation. To do this, the wound (the place where the implantation was performed) should be treated with various dental pastes. The substances included in the composition of the pastes not only reduce inflammation and increase regeneration, but also significantly reduce the discomfort in the oral cavity.

With all the appointments and recommendationsthe doctor, and also with the correct and timely provision of necessary measures, the consequences, including swelling after implantation of the teeth, take place after 6-7 days. For prolonged pain, bleeding, or a long-term edema, you should consult your doctor.
