Physical Activities – Limitations
For the first twenty four hours after the surgery, physical activities must be strictly avoided because this time is the first critical stages of healing process. In common, the level of discomfort will be the most severe for 2 days after the tooth extraction. So, oral surgeons recommend patients to take a complete rest on bed and avoid physical activities. This includes most strenuous work like exercise, bending, heavy lifting and more.
Many people question that can they return to their regular sport activities after 48 hours of healing. But, obviously, the answer is no! It is not wise at all to get straight back to your normal level of physical activities or sports participation in just two or three days after experiencing oral surgery. Instead, return slowly for regular cardiovascular exercise step by step for a few days and then shift to running laps, sprints, or basic conditioning.
The Bottom Line
Don’t push yourself for any risky physical activities and stay away from any contact of sports in order to avoid getting hit in the face or mouth. Watch out for any increased pain or hurting during a physical activity and if so, stop it immediately and talk to your oral surgeon in Sydney to make sure everything went right!
