After Dental Implant Surgery
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.
Our Happy Patients
This is such a wonderful place with friendly office staff. I was very afraid of dentist appointments but this office makes you feel so comfortable. I highly recommend this office.
Nicole is the best dental hygienist that I’ve ever had! She’s patient, caring, great sense of humor and very professional. She explained what she was doing every step of the way.
This was my first visit to Barnum Dental. It was a very pleasant experience. I had a cleaning done by a wonderful hygienist. She was very thorough and pointed out some things that my previous dentist never did. Thumbs up! The Dentist was kind and friendly. He made me feel at ease. Very clean facility. Sweet front desk staff.
