I had a dental implant surgery about three weeks ago. The gums around the implant are still swollen and flabby (not tight like they should be). My oral surgeon told me to use disinfectant/antiseptic and make sure that it gets under the gums, etc (basically, pick at the area!) after every meal. I've been doing that for almost two weeks and it's still not changing! It's not getting worse, and it doesn't hurt unless I pick at it deep under the gum.
What do you suggest I do? Would you say that this may risk the success of my implant?
