After Dental Implant Surgery


After you have undergone dental implant surgery, it is recommended that you take at easy for 48-72 hours as resting assists the healing process and limits after surgery bleeding. Drink plenty of fluids, but nothing too cold. It may help if you apply an ice pack to your face in twenty-minute intervals for 2 days following surgery. If you received upper implants, do not blow your nose for two weeks. For 2 days after the surgery, it is common to experience slight bleeding. You will feel slightly uncomfortable the first two days, but the third day is generally better. An increase in temperature of about 1 to 2 degrees is to be expected and is not a cause for concern. You can eat when you are hungry, but do not chew directly onto the bone graft.
