Take Some Time Off and Rest

Rest is an essential aftercare tip. The lack of rest after a dental procedure can lead to a longer healing period or complications.


Patients should consider taking days off work after getting All-on-4 dental implants. During the early phase of recovery, rest is essential to help ensure the jawbone and gum begin to heal. Patients need to plan ahead for a few days of rest after receiving their new implants.

Maintain Proper Oral Hygiene

Oral Hygiene can prevent infections and help implants heal.

In the days following the surgery, patients will be advised to avoid brushing and go for a medicated rinse instead. After some days, patients should use the same oral hygiene as they would with natural teeth, that is brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and using an antibacterial mouthwash.

Have a Strict Diet

In order to protect the implants, and avoid pain or complications, patients should follow a strict diet in the first few days after getting the implants.

Patients should avoid hard and chewy foods. Instead, soft foods are the best option, including yogurt, pudding, scrambled eggs, ice cream, noodles smoothies, applesauce, and mashed potatoes.
