Eating

After the placement of dental implants, you will need to slightly change your diet for a certain periode as specified by your surgeon. This period may vary from two to twelve weeks.

Important recommendations:

Do not consume anything hot for the first 24 hours after surgery.

Do not wear your denture during meals. Too much pressure exerted by the denture impede the integration of the implants.

To help you plan your meals, here are some examples of menus prepared by the nutrition department of the Enfant-Jésus Hospital of Quebec in collaboration with the department of oral and maxillofacial surgery of this institution.
