9. HOW TO COPE WITH FOOD FOLLOWING DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Immediately after the intervention (1st session: implant placement), a transition period must be respected to allow time to bone and gum to prepare for healing. During this period, it is recommended to consume liquid food during the first 3 days (soups, soups, yogurts, smoothies, etc.).
Then, from the 4th to 6th day, you begin to reintroduce a soft diet (pasta, rice, eggs, fish, etc.).
Finally, on the 7th day, a little firmer food may be added (meat, vegetables, bread). After placing the final prosthesis (2nd session), the resumption of food should be gradual to allow time for the jaws to get used to their new host.
But the process is very brief and quickly you will taste everything you want.
