I got my implant(not the tooth part yet just the part that screws into the bone). It's still swollen but I'm worried it's not right. Obviously dentist is closed now so thought I would ask here. If you have pictures of yours after you got stitches removed(before getting the tooth part I'd love to see them)

My close friend got her entire bottom teeth done this year. Wish I could help. Hang in there. I'm sure it is fine.

Did they not place a temporary in?

I didn't see my friends, but I think that looks ok. It's not red. Just keep following their after care instructions. It's going to be swollen for a while and even get worse before it gets better. It will heal quick. When are they talking about putting the permanent in?

3/4 months. The part under is just a huge flap, and my gum is receding on the front tooth beside it. I'm hoping with time everything looks normalish.

I was a dental assistant and dealt with a few of these. It looks fine, pretty good for just having all this work done. Your gum tissue is just swollen from surgery. Once the swelling goes down and the tissue gets used to that area being different it will look and feel more normal.

It doesn't look bad.  What concerns you?  Just remember it takes time to heal.
