Nowadays, having dental implants is a simpler procedure due to the evolution of dental medicine. Still, early on, after having implants, extra care is required. But for those who visit Portugal to take care of their oral health matters and who also want to get to know the country, it is important to have an idea of what kind of tourist activities are available and appropriate for the recovery phase.
Before planning your activities, let's address what you must do to ensure a quick and complete recovery, as the first 48 hours are crucial for dental implants to be successful.
Some thought must be given to the following points:

• Bring an oral hygiene kit with you so you can brush teeth as required. But, beware: do not brush the intervention area;
• Do not smoke and do not drink alcohol;
• Avoid physical exertion and exposure to the sun.

The hardest thing will be resisting the glorious Portuguese snacks and typical dishes on offer. But if you stay long enough, you can enjoy these culinary delights later.
However, while in recovery, there are plenty of distractions and activities safe enough for this phase of your dental treatments!
