    Hi
    He is the expert here, my common sense tells me that only he can answer this.

    2 months ago I had a similar surgery: had to scratch the bones where I have some implants, got several stitches.
    I fully respected the period he recommended for no efforts. And now my workouts are fully normal, no damage from that rest.
    Quick recover

      Respect what your doc said, and definitly do not the usual running / weights / things that can shake your jaws. But if you lfeel restless, maybe look at the office exercises - gentle exercises that do not jolt your body, so mostly torso and arms. And walk (of course listening to your body). Have a good and safe recovery! One week of rest should not set you back, don't worry too much.

        Blood pressure and impacts of any kind are probably the reason for the rest period.

        So walking and stretches where your head is on top are probably fine. Maybe this is the time to finally master the splits.

          Love the idea of a week-long split challenge!

              I'd guess that the reason for it is to let the blood clot form where the tooth was. If you dance around too much, it can dislodge the clot and then you have to wait for the new clot to form, essentially doubling the length of time it takes to heal. + the longer it takes to heal, the more chance there is for an infection. It's frustrating to have to stop exercising for a bit, but I think your dentist has a point. How about exercising the mind in the meantime?

                    The reason not to workout is just so you don´t raise your blood pressure, so anything chill should be welcome, like walking or stretching.

                    In any case, 1 week seems like a lot to me to be honest. When I got all 4 wisdom teeth removed at the very same time my dentist told me to avoid heavy lifts for just 3 days.

                    Horrible experience by the way, 1/10, wouldnt recommend.

                      I had an extraction with a bone graft. One week is what was recommened. I only did slow walking for that week and it healed properly.

                        Follow all recommendations made to you by your doctor. I am sure that your Dentist knows better than you and will definitely tell you when and what kind of exercise you will be allowed.

It is a harrowing operation, especially the healing of the wound. I couldn't eat regular food at all for a week, eating only liquid food like soup. When the pain subsided, and everything seemed to have healed, I went off to play football. Well, I got hit with a football ball right in the face on the side where the implant was. I was in so much pain that I was screaming like mad. I really regretted going to play, hahaha, and then suffered another week with a toothache(
