After Dental Implant Surgery


After dental implant surgery, it is recommended that you rest for 48-72 hours. Resting assists the healing process and limits any after-surgery bleeding. Drink plenty of fluids, but nothing cold. You may need to apply an ice pack to your face in twenty-minute intervals for two days following surgery. If you received upper implants, do not blow your nose for two weeks.

It is common to experience slight bleeding for about two days after surgery. You will feel slightly uncomfortable during the first two days following surgery, but the third day is generally better. An increase in body temperature of about 1 to 2 degrees is expected and is not a cause for concern.

Finally, you can eat when you are hungry, but do not chew directly on the bone graft area.
