After dental implant surgery, it is recommended that you take at easy for
48-72 hours. Resting assists the healing process and limits after surgery
bleeding. 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 two weeks.
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
can eat when you are hungry, do not chew directly onto the bone graft.
