Dental implant smells bad-
I have a dental implant tooth that I have had for 101 years and it smells really bad. like poop..litterally.. I was wandering if that’s normal and if it’s from bacteria and stuff building up. Should I be able to see the cement that the dentist put above my tooth to keep it in? He screwed it in my mouth but I can see something really realyl hard right above my tooth and looks like it could be black under it like maybe the screw or something? Should I be seeing this?

please email me back. I’m so worried and scared

    Smell of Implant NEW

    Hi Stefanie,

    What you are describing is classic periodontal (gum) disease, as the result of inadequate preventive care (cleaning appointments) or flossing. As plaque congregates along the gumlines, it will calcify when not removed. This turns into “tartar” and will build up below the gum surface, causing detachment of the gums, bone loss, bad breath, bleeding gums and possibly the loss of teeth. Tartar may be yellow, white, brown of black. It sounds like you need to have a professional deep cleaning ASAP in order to restore the health of your mouth before it is too late.
