Appointment 4: POST PROCEDURE CHECK UP
It is important to keep in mind there is a recovery period following your dental implant procedure. Typically patients will be on a soft food diet for several weeks to a few months while their implants integrate. During this time, most patients will return for several checkups to ensure that everything is healing properly; all post-op checkups are at no additional cost.
During the recovery phase, Dr. Waldman will review any esthetic or functional concerns. This is your opportunity to discuss any changes you wish to make from your temporary set of teeth. Dr. Waldman will review any desired changes and have them implemented so that you can have the smile of your dreams.
If you have some teeth in your opposite jaw, it is important to maintain any routine dental hygiene appointments during this time.
