I had an implant done on my lower left jaw 19 days ago. The dentist stated that everything went very smoothly and I felt fine. The following morning I got up and exercised vigorously. Little did I know what a mistake this was. The area around the implant swelled quite a bit. It was Friday and I was going out of town for three days. By Saturday morning I was in significant pain but taking 800mg doses of Advil to mask the symptoms. I went back to the dentist on Tuesday. He told me I was crazy for having exercised but the damage was done. I was told the tissue had blanched and they swabbed an iodine solution to the area almost daily for a week. No relief from the pain but the tissue looked better. I have been on several antibiotics (currently clindamycin) . On the 15th day I went to a periodontist and he found no bad teeth. It is now 19 days since the implant and I basically have as much pain as I did on the 3rd day. I feel as if I have an abcessed tooth.

Any ideas?
