Dental implant gone wrong

I had an implant done by a qualified surgeon in Richmond hill, Amir Mousafir, lower back molar ,a bone graph was done as well, woke up the next morning still frozen, A month later he removed the implant,at first he said the implant was not touching the nerve, after a month of trauma and pain and frozen lower lip and chin,he removed it , and then said yes it was close to nerve.

It is now 14 months later and still frozen , numbness there on right half of lower lip and chin, he has ruined my face, I use to sing a lot , laugh a lot, even a good kiss hurts, I sell new homes for a living so I have to talk a lot, every evening or at anytime of day, I experience burning pain in these areas, only warm feels good, heating pad or hot wash cloths applied to my face, I sometimes experience a slight frozen feeling, I call brain freeze, on both sides of my face to my temples, its a weird feeling, only way I can explain the feeling, The surgeon would only at the time refund my money if I signed a release statement that I would not sue him, who would ever expect this when you are referred to a specialist.

I know he felt bad this happened to me, but has never called once since to see how I am, pretty bad on his part. I keep hoping one day I will wake up and feel normal again, it has taken a long time to realize it has not affected my looks, when I talk to people I even now feel like they notice ,my mouth feels like its pulling on one side, horrible feeling like I just left the dentist office, it is easing up some , but will it ever go away and feel normal again.

    Dental Implant gone wrong NEW

    Kim,

    Unfortunately, nerve damage is a risk associated with having dental implants placed, though permanent nerve damage is rare. It sounds like the implant you had placed was not just “close” to the nerve but actually made contact with and damaged the nerve.

    Nerves take a long time to heal and some of the sensations you are having may be permanent. If you are having any improvements at all, as slow as they may be, then that is promising news.

    I’m sorry that this has happened to you and that the surgeon is not following up with your care. It sounds like you are experiencing basically the worst case scenario when it comes to having an implant placed.
