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 bleeding after surgery. Drink plenty of fluids, but nothing too cold. You may need to apply an ice pack to your face in twenty-minute intervals for the 2 days following surgery. If you received upper implants, do not blow your nose for 2 weeks. It is common to experience slight bleeding for about 2 days after surgery. You will feel slightly uncomfortable the first 2 days following surgery, but the 3rd 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 can eat when you are hungry, do not chew directly onto the bone graft.
