After dental implant surgery, it is recommended that you take at 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 (not directly) in twenty-minute intervals the day of 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. Bruising may also occur. Finally, while you can eat when you are hungry, do not chew directly on the implant site.
