The first question that a patient ask when performing a dental surgery is: when can I do exercise? when can I travel? People should take advised of their dentist when performing an oral surgery.
We have to take into account the type of surgery that has been performed and follow the surgeon’s instructions, remember they are the experts in the care of the oral cavity.
In general, it is advised that after a surgical procedure you can not do exercise for the first 48 hours, the reason why exercise is not recommended is due to the fact that blood pumping is stimulated which produces a greater bleeding at the level of the wound and also, can produce an infection. Try to rest the first two days after the surgery.
When performing a surgery such as a sinus lift it is essential to avoid pressure changes so you can not travel by plane, dive, swim, trek to great heights, play wind musical instruments, for at least 15 days after the intervention.
On the other hand, when flying in an airplane you could experience pain or sensitivity when taking off in the area where the surgery was performed, this is due to changes in altitude and the pressure your body experiences. You may also have swollen in the affected area, causing discomfort even when eating and talking.
