PMDC Dental Exercise After Dental Surgery

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 05:28 PM

If you are someone who exercises on a regular basis, you may be wondering how having a dental procedure at PMDC Dental may impact your exercise routine. It will indeed have an impact, and knowing what that impact might be will help you understand when you may be able to get back to your routine.

The type of surgery done will typically determine how long you should wait before exercising again. It is usually not a good idea to attempt any exercise for at least 24 hours no matter what the surgery, as your body needs time to recover. For simpler procedures like wisdom teeth removal or a tooth implant, it is usually best to wait a day or two before attempting any exercise. For more complicated procedures like a root canal or reconstructive surgery, you will want to wait several days before exercising, if not a week or so. While exercise typically doesn’t put as much strain on your mouth as it does other parts of the body, it can still cause strain, and you want to give your mouth time to heal after the surgery.

Once you do start exercising again, it is best to start off with exercise that is low impact. If you do high impact exercises, your mouth may feel the impact, and that could put pressure on the surgical site. This could risk re-opening the wound and causing bleeding, which will draw out the healing process. Exercises like yoga, stretching, and walking can be low impact enough to not worry too much about impacting the surgical site. However, running is too high impact. Things like contact sports should be avoided at all costs until your mouth has had ample time to heal.

You should also check for signs your body is giving you if you are ready for exercise yet or not. If you are still feeling tired or still feeling pain from the surgery, it probably isn’t a good time to start exercising. If you try exercising and feel pain around the surgical site, it most likely means you are exercising too soon after the surgery and you should still wait a while. Exercise is healthy, and it should definitely be something you do on a regular basis, but healing from the surgery takes precedence above all else.
