1. If after investigations, it came out, simple swelling, then probably would suggest infection.
2. Chew with natural teeth and not on the dental implant during inflammatory phase.
3. There is a documented increased failure rate of implants in patients who smoke. [don't mix them]
4. Routine follow-up appointments can identify potential problems that could delay the restoration of your implant.

PS: Dalacin c [clindamycin] is antibiotic to prevent any secondary infection whereas signoflam [aceclofenac+ paracetamol] is non opioid analgesic and anti pyretic to minimize pain.
