Implantation of teeth edema photo

Edema after implantation of teethIs a natural reaction of the body to damage to soft tissues and the introduction of a foreign body.

As a rule, the tumor is localized in the area of ​​the implant.

Edema is formed as a result of the involvement of the immune reaction in the process.

The size of the edema depends on the individual characteristics of the organism, as well as on the degree of traumatization of the tissues during the implant installation.

  • Usually, the tumor after implantation of the teeth manifests itself within two to three hours after the operation and increases by the third day.
  • In the absence of complications in the postoperative period, puffiness occurs on the fifth - seventh day.
  • Starting from the fourth day after implantation, the determining factor is the dynamics of the tumor.
  • If the puffiness begins to subside, the postoperative period proceeds normally.

In case of swelling, you should immediately consult a doctor!

How to behave in the first days of the postoperative period

After the operation for one and a half days, it is necessary to apply cold to the place of the implant.

This is especially necessary if two or more implants were installed, and a sine lifting operation was performed.
