In brief: Implant
Sometimes swelling is very normal.
It depends on where the implant is placed. You should call your doctor and schedule an appointment for them to take a look to check that the tooth is healing properly and has no infection. Often times after an implant is placed an antibiotic is given to prevent infection.
