Diet

You will need to be on a clear fluid diet with no dairy products for at least the first 48 hours after your procedure, to allow for some initial healing around the graft sites. You’ll then need to adhere to a very soft/blended diet for a week to ten days as your wounds heal, gradually increasing the texture and variety of foods from then on.

If you are treated as a ‘single stage’ case, or alternatively after Stage II surgery when the healing abutments protrude through the gum, please note that you should not use the abutments as “teeth” for chewing. The Wisdom team will advise you when you are able to “load” your new implants. It is very important that you do not prematurely put pressure on your implants.
