Exercise After Dental Implant Surgery Needs to Wait
Posted on 2/23/2018 by Dr. Shiotsu
Even if you love to exercise and are wanting to burn off those extra calories, after dental surgery, it should be avoided. You need to make sure that you give your body and mouth some time to rest after the procedure and this includes exercise. Knowing the dangers of exercising after dental implant surgery can give you an idea of why it is important to wait until you're cleared for exercise once again. Wait 2 to 3 Days Generally, the patient is advised to take 2 to 3 days off of exercising, jogging, playing sports or other activities that would cause the area any discomfort. Sometimes the patient is recommended to take a longer time off, depending on the procedure and how it went. Running and exercising can cause the blood in the body to cause a lot of problems with the surgical site. This can cause more pain to happen in the area due to the increased blood flow and circulation in the area. This is why it is always recommended that the person waits for an amount of time before they do any exercise. The implant can be rejected from the site when you jump right into exercise. Not only that, but the area that is affected can become more painful due to the increased exercise. This is why it is always best to wait for some time before jumping into any exercise or other activities. If you're unsure of how long you have to wait to exercise or do any sort of strenuous activity, then you should always make sure to ask us. Speak with us to find out any additional aftercare instructions that you need to know to ensure that the surgical site is kept clean and that it is in the best shape so that it heals correctly....
