What Can I Eat After Implant Surgery?

In the following video, Brent Bradford, DDS, explains what foods you are free to enjoy after your dental implant procedure, and which foods to avoid.

After having mini implants placed, it’s great to hear that you won’t have to adhere to a strict diet indefinitely. However, it’s wise to avoid hard foods for the first few days post-procedure to ease the discomfort as the tissue around the implant site heals. It’s also essential during this initial period to allow the implant to stabilize within the bone.

If you have a temporary single crown or bridge, it’s best to stay away from sticky foods that could potentially dislodge the temporary fixture. Once you’ve received your final, permanent restoration, whether it’s a crown, bridge, or dentures, you can enjoy a diet similar to what you had with your natural teeth, with no restrictions.

For personalized advice and to learn more about how mini implants can benefit you, I encourage you to take advantage of our offer for a free consultation. This way, we can assess your specific needs and discuss how you can return to enjoying your favorite foods with confidence.
