Breast implant was removed 5 weeks post op due to staph infection. I kept biting my tongue in the same place and it hasn't completely healed, could this have seeded the staph infection in the breast?

Although dental procedures or oral injuries can technically cause a temporary bacteremia (bacteria in the bloodstream), this is very likely unrelated to your implant infection.
