Getting new dental implants is an exciting step towards a brighter smile. Concerns about post-surgery discomfort are common, but managing this discomfort is simpler than you might think. At Ponce Dental, we aim to make your recovery as comfortable as possible. Here’s how:

Understanding Post-Surgery Discomfort

After dental implant surgery, it’s natural to experience some discomfort as your body heals. Pain levels vary, but our team is committed to minimizing and managing any discomfort you feel.

Ponce Dental’s Pain Management Approach

Our focus is on delivering precise and minimally invasive procedures, which helps reduce post-surgery discomfort. Here are some strategies we recommend:

Effective Pain Management Techniques

1. Cold Compresses

Apply cold compresses for 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off to reduce swelling and discomfort, especially in the first few days after surgery.

2. Head Elevation

Sleep with your head elevated above your heart to prevent swelling and bruising. Use extra pillows or a recliner to keep your head elevated.

3. Customized Medication Plan

We tailor your pain relief plan to your needs. Over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen are often recommended, and our doctors may prescribe additional medications if necessary.
