3 recent implants

I had 3 implants in teeth 12, 13, 14,about 2 weeks ago on 8/4 and had been doing well. Yesterday at my 2 week checkup, my oral surgeon removed the stitches and it didn't hurt much at all at the time. But now I'm having mild pain which started early this morning. Stopped my peridex yesterday.

Does this seem like natural soreness after sutures removed or beginning of a problem? I have gone back to peridex and just took 2 motrins. Had AMoxicillin for 10 days starting b4 surgery. Also, used my waterpik for the first time last time with surgeon's ok but tried not to shoot it into the implant area. Thanks!

Yes it will be alright, nothing to worry about - it is just a mild infection.
