Recovery Time for Immediate Temporization Type Dental Implant

How much recovery time for extraction, implant, bone graft (cadaver) and a few stitches? No flap made. I am on day 3 and still have headache and dizziness above implant (#6) with some nausea. On Amoxicillin and tylenol.

Recovery Time For Dental Implant Placement

Everybody is a little different.  It sounds like you an immediate impalnt placed.  IT depends on how difficult the extraction was because that is usually what causes the most discomfort in the procedure.  The implant will cause very little discomfort normally.  Placing bone graft material usually causes an inflammatory reaction  (which is what you wnat for healing) a couple days after placement as well.  The nausea is most likely from the amox.  Make sure you are not taking meds on an empty stomach.  It also depends on the experience of the doctor that placed the implant and how long the procedure was.  Normall 5-7 days of some minor discomfort is reasonable for this procedure, if the pain continues past that see you doctor to make sure all is well
