After dental implant surgery, you may experience some of the typical discomforts associated with any type of dental surgery. It is advised that you limit activity for 24-48 hours. Rest will assist the healing process and will help to minimize after surgery bleeding. It is common to experience slight bleeding for about two days after surgery. An ice pack may be applied to your face in twenty-minute intervals for the 2 days following surgery. If you have received upper implants, do not blow your nose for two weeks. You may experience a slight fever increase of about 1 to 2 degrees and is not a cause for concern. You can eat as normal, taking care not to chew directly on the bone graft site.
