At Mission Hills Dental, Dr. Razi and our team is dedicated to providing high-level dental care, including dental implant surgery. Dental implants are popular options for replacing missing teeth, offering a permanent and natural-looking restoration. If you’re considering dental implant surgery in Granada Hills, Sylmar, San Fernando, or nearby areas, here are some essentials to understand about the healing process. 

Immediately after dental implant surgery, it’s normal to experience some symptoms such as swelling and minor bleeding. Dr. Razi will provide you with specific instructions on how to manage these symptoms and alleviate any pain. It’s essential to follow these guidelines carefully to ensure a smooth and speedy recovery.

Diet and Eating Habits

In the days following surgery, you may need to stick to a soft diet and avoid chewing on the implant site to prevent irritation or damage. It’s also crucial to practice good oral hygiene by gently brushing and rinsing your mouth with an antimicrobial mouthwash.


During the first few weeks after dental implant surgery, the implants will gradually integrate with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. During this process, period and avoid putting too much pressure on the implants to allow for proper healing.

Follow-up Appointments

As your gums heal and the implants become more stable, you will be scheduled in follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and determine when it’s safe to proceed with the next phase of treatment, such as attaching the permanent crown.

Overall, the recovery period after dental implant surgery varies depending on each patient’s case, but with proper care and attention, you can expect to enjoy a fully restored smile that looks and feels natural. If you have any concerns or questions during this process, do not hesitate to contact Mission Hills Dental for assistance.
