What to expect after a dental implant procedure?

There is slight oozing of blood in the saliva within the first 24 hours after the dental implant surgery, which is normal. Bleeding can be controlled, and blood flow is reduced by placing a gauze on the area of the operation and biting it gently for 30 minutes, repeat these steps until the bleeding decreases.

Swelling after dental implants is expected and still considered normal, swelling can be reduced by using ice packs and placing them on the cheek within the first 48 hours in the dental implant area.

Minimal or no pain will be felt within the first 24 hours. Any medicine should be taken according to the doctor’s instructions, and do not take medicines that the doctor has not prescribed.
