Post-op dental implant pain? (Photo)

I recommend you return to visit the original surgeon to evaluate the area. There is always a possibility of infection in the area. A radiographic evaluation of the area is warranted as well as a clinical evaluation. I think it's important for you to get a 3D image of the implant that way you can visualize the entire area around it. Good luck!
