After Dental Implant Surgery

After dental implant surgery, it is recommended that you take it easy for 48-72 hours. Resting speeds up the healing process and limits bleeding. Drink plenty of room-temperature fluids, as you may be sensitive to extreme temperatures. You may need to apply an ice pack in twenty-minute intervals for the two days following surgery- bleeding is common during this period. If you received upper implants, do not blow your nose for two weeks. You will feel slightly uncomfortable, but the third day is generally better. A fever of 1 to 2 degrees is expected and is not a cause for concern. Finally, while you should eat when you are hungry, do not chew directly onto the bone graft.
