How to Slowly Readjust to Exercise Following Oral Surgery
Posted on 10/20/2019 by Tricia Ramsay
There are times when teeth removal is inevitable. This requires oral surgery. Other times, a dentist will need to treat your oral disease by performing some sort of surgical procedure. Like with any other surgical practice, you have to employ exercise to help you heal and restore your normal health conditions.
All exercises should range from mild as you progress toward the technical ones all the while monitoring your wound's response. Soon enough, with the right kind of speed tailored to your personal recovery time, you should be able to eat normally and move your muscles freely.
What Are Some Exercises To Start With After Surgery?
A common exercise to carry out after removal of wisdom teeth is to lie flat on a mat, raise your stomach and support your upper body with your arms on the ground. From that position, raise your head and neck while breathing in, mouth open, then drop it as you breathe out and close your mouth. There are other exercises that involve rotating your neck from right to center, then to the left as you open and stretch your mouth. You can also try smiling really wide and opening your mouth to its maximum.
Is It Advisable To Do This Unmonitored?
Remember this is surgery and during the very first days after the procedure, patients require full attention and monitoring to ensure they fully recover. A doctor is best placed to examine and recommend the best exercises to undertake after surgery. This is mainly because most people differ in terms of tissue resilience, immunity levels as well as ability to properly maintain basic oral hygiene.
