  • Are dental implants worth the money?

    Dental implants can be a great option for patients who have lost one or more teeth. They offer several benefits, such as improved chewing ability, better speech, and a more natural-looking smile. Additionally, implants can help maintain the bone structure of the jaw, which can deteriorate over time after tooth loss. While dental implants can be more expensive than other options, they are often considered a long-term investment in your oral health. Other options, such as dentures or bridges, may need to be replaced or adjusted over time, which can add up in cost. Ultimately, whether dental implants are worth the money will depend on your individual needs and preferences. A dental professional can evaluate your oral health and provide personalized recommendations based on your situation. READ MORE

  • How can I prevent infection after jaw surgery?

    1. Take prescribed medications: Your surgeon may prescribe antibiotics and pain relievers after your surgery. It's important to take these medications as directed to prevent infection and manage any discomfort. 2. Keep the surgical site clean: Your surgeon will provide instructions on how to clean the surgical site. Follow these instructions carefully and avoid touching the area with your fingers or tongue. 3. Use salt water rinse: Salt water rinses can help keep the surgical site clean and prevent infection. Your surgeon will advise you on how often and for how long you should use the rinse. 4. Avoid smoking: Smoking can delay the healing process and increase the risk of infection. If you smoke, try to quit or at least avoid smoking for several weeks after surgery. 5. Avoid alcohol: Alcohol can also delay healing and increase the risk of infection. Avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours after surgery, or as long as your surgeon recommends. 6. Eat soft foods: Your surgeon will advise you on what types of foods to eat and how to prepare them. Soft foods like soups, mashed potatoes, and smoothies are often recommended in the days following surgery. 7. Attend follow-up appointments: Your surgeon will want to monitor your progress and make sure you're healing properly. Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments and let your surgeon know if you have any concerns. By following these recommendations, you can reduce your risk of infection and promote proper healing after jaw surgery. READ MORE
