Concerned about dental implant: Stitches becoming loose? (photo)
Doctor Answers 2
I suggest that you visit the dentist for a follow up exam. You do not want to leave infection at the bone graft area as this would cause the graft to fail.
The photo seems a bit blurry, but the deep red color suggests an inflammatory process. This may be normal to the invasiveness of the procedure, but please check with your surgeon to rule out infection.
