You have been scheduled for an implant procedure. Prior to your appointment we want to inform you about what to expect afterwards.
It is most important to maintain a nutritious diet at all times particularly during the healing period. People who maintain a good diet of soft foods generally feel better, have less discomfort and heal faster. The foods listed below are planned to provide adequate vitamins and minerals. Foods containing tomatoes, onions, pepper, or spices of any kind may be irritating and should be avoided. Fruit juices may cause a burning sensation unless taken through a straw. A blender may be used to liquefy foods. You must eat at least three balanced meals daily. Take a multi-vitamin that contains Vitamins C, E, and Zinc twice a day.
REMEMBER: You may eat any soft foods that do not irritate. You may chew if it is not uncomfortable to do so. You may lose part of the dressing around the teeth as your ability to chew improves but this can be replaced easily.
IMPORTANT: A hungry person becomes irritable and nervous. It has been scientifically proven that a patient in this state is more susceptible to pain. The importance of a good diet cannot be overly stressed, especially following surgery.
