The surgeon removed most of the added part the dentist added to relieve pressure

I had dental implants put in Oct. 31. Now after all seemed to be going well. My snap on smile appliance wasn't fitting well, so my dentist added a piece to the appliance to cover a hole between the teeth upper gums. This new fit was tight, so I called my oral surgeon to check. The surgeon removed most of the added part the dentist added to relieve pressure from the healing site.

The next night after all this, the healing cap in this area first showed white fluid, then blood. Is this normal or does it sound like an infection?

Also I came down with C-Diff. after using antibiotics with the surgery for bone grafts, so the doctor didn't use any antibotics with this last surgery for putting in the implants.

What antibiotic would you recommend for someone that is allergic the erythromycin, amoxicillan, sulfa, codiene, and clindomycin?

Infection
by: Sharon B., RDH

After 2 weeks recovery time it is not normal to have bleeding on the site of an extraction or surgical procedure. Having a white fluid drainage as well sounds like it is typical of an infection. Be sure to always complete all antibiotic therapies completely, and do not discontinue using them simply because you feel that you no longer have an infection. This can encourage antibiotic resistance in infections and make it more difficult to treat infections medicinally. If you are simply taking medication to cover up an infection that needs to have treatment (i.e. an area that needs a root canal) you must have the treatment completed within a timely manner, or the infection will just come right back and then require you to take another round of antibiotic therapy. As far as drug allergies, please speak to your personal pharmacist to determine what the best options for you would be if you have severe drug allergies.
