After Dental Implant Surgery

 

After dental implant surgery, it is recommended that you take it easy for 48-72 hours. Resting assists the healing process and limits after surgery bleeding. Drink plenty of fluids, but nothing too cold or too hot. You may need to apply an ice pack to your face in twenty-minute intervals for the 2 days following surgery. It is common to experience slight bleeding for about two days after surgery. You will feel slightly uncomfortable the first two days following surgery, 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. Finally, while you are eating, try not to chew directly on the surgical site.  Please call our office for any questions and/or follow the instructions on post operative forms given at time of procedure.
