Here’s what you can expect after getting your dental implants.
1. Things feel different
When you speak after getting dental implants, you might notice a change in how it feels. You might have to adjust how you speak now that you have dental implants, so give yourself time to make those adjustments. Eventually, sounds and words that were difficult for you to pronounce before getting implants will come with ease!
2. Some swelling and pain
While serious complications are extremely unlikely when getting dental implants, some pain and swelling may cause you discomfort as you heal. Both symptoms are natural responses to surgery and will eventually disappear. Generally, you will be able to use over-the-counter medications to alleviate pain. If you’re looking for ways to bring swelling down, ice will be your best bet.
3. “Different” will become natural
It may take you some time to get used to your implants, but soon, “different” won’t feel so different anymore! Your smile will feel like it’s yours again, and odd sensations as you speak will fade. You will feel more like yourself than you have in a long time!
4. Confidence boost!
Once you’ve had your implants placed, it is likely that you’ll feel like you look and sound more normal. And this will automatically boost your confidence! The best part? Feeling and sounding confident will just give you one more reason to show off your new smile!
