  • Thank you for the answer. I have a followup with the dentist in the morning. the dark `choclate` color had subsided, but sinuses still clogged. Thanks!

  • If you have chocolate color discharge coming out of the sinus then it can be the sinus perforation which is a common complication after the tooth etraction and the implant surgery. it is not because of the chocolate ice cream. It is better  you visit your dentist and get the proper diagnosis made as it is difficult to give proper diagnosis and treatment plan with out seeing the case clinically and taking the proper history. But take precaution to not to blow the tooth as it can complicate the situation.
