Lower molar number 7 was extracted 7 years ago. 1 year ago I tried a bridge,which was takenout after 6 months as it put pressure on molar number 8. A month ago doc did rct on lower molar number 6 which had become sensitive after the prepping for the bridge. 11 days ago he did implant surgery on my missing tooth and placed an abutment.
Cifran 500 , combiflam ( CRocin plus brufane) 500 . Both twice a day
Pls see the background in the medical history tab. I took cifran 500 for 7 days twice a day starting from 2 days before the implant surgery.i smoke one cigarette each after lunch and dinner but did not smoke at all after surgery.stitches were removed after 7 days and doc was very impressed with the healing.I took good care of oral hygiene including regular brushing and rinsing with warm salted water.
But there was always a low grade pain, not severe but not ignorable also ,like a throb.I have been taking two combiflams a day for that . This pain is neither increasing nor decreasing. Also since last 3 days I see inflammation in the gums area where the stitches were,between the abutment and the neighbouring tooth.I showed it to doc today and he cleaned it and gave antibiotics. He said a pocket is formed because of food lodging under the gums of the neighbouring tooth.he doesn't say it's cause of too much concern.
But I am worried and wonder:
1. Why this lingering pain even after almost 2 weeks of surgery?
2. Why sudden onset of infection after a very clean first week?
3.where do I stand now?
4. Should I seek another opinion?i believe in having a complete trust over whoever my doc is but I have had too many bad dental experiences.
