I have bone grafting done for the implant of my top four central teeth. It was done under general anesthesia, and a molar was extracted to get some bone. I have considerable swelling now. However, the pain is reducing and also taking antibiotics. Is that much swelling normal? Please advise.
I have reviewed your reports (attachment removed for protecting the patient's identity). There will be swelling for five days to a week because of inflammation. However, the swelling looks normal as your submandibular spaces look fine, and there is no spread of infection.
Take antibiotics as per prescription or update your antibiotics schedule here to know if it is as per the norms so that I can tell you if there is any need to change. You may need to visit an emergency room if you feel any breathing difficulties.
Please follow up for further assistance.
