Be patient: SCTG is a surgical procedure and is not completely risk-free. Pain, swelling, bad breath and infection and nausea following surgery is usually at its worst 24 – 48 hours after surgery. After that it should subside more and more every day and after 7 days stop. For implant surgery IV sedation is highly recommended as it will reduce post-operative pain and complications.
