What to do if your face swells after a dental implant

Many times, after the dental implant, it can happen that the patient's face swells, respectively the area where he worked. Sometimes this can be a natural reaction of the body, other times the swelling can be caused by an infection.

PREVENTION OF INFECTION AFTER DENTAL IMPLANT

The main concern of the doctor is that the area where the dental implant was inserted does not become infected. The infection can lead to rejection of the implant by the body.

  • Immediately after the implant is inserted, the doctor gives the patient an anti-inflammatory (eg Nurofen).
  • Then it is recommended to administer analgesics every 8 hours to prevent pain

Antibiotics are given as prophylactic therapy to prevent minimal local infection of the mucosa and bone in the area adjacent to the implant.

WHAT TO DO IF THE GIRL SWELLS AFTER YOU GET HOME?

As I said, swelling of the face does not always occur due to an infection. Rather, the swelling is a normal reaction of the body to the introduction of the implant. Usually, when local inflammation occurs, it is accompanied by pain. Here's what you need to do to reduce inflammation:

  1. Apply and maintain a local cold (handkerchief ice, for example)
  2. Rinse mouth with special antiseptic solutions or teas recommended by your doctor (starting the day after the implant)
  3. If after 3 days the face continues to be swollen, see a doctor

Even if the face visibly swells, the body will heal in the necessary time. What the doctor can do is relieve the pain and symptoms caused by the surgery; the more extensive the operation, the more complex the inflammation is likely to occur. But with a drug control, this problem will disappear in 2-3 days.

Come as you are!
