Pain after implants

| March 27, 2014 | 1 Comment

Please help. I had just gotten all on four Implants on my lower jaw 30 days ago, I have been having severe pain on the right side , I have told the dentist this repeatedly and was just there yesterday, he took x -rays and said everything is fine, bone looks good, implant and gum are perfect.

Then what is causing this pain? He sent me home with a prescription for Motrin. I think he thinks I am making it up but why would I drive hour out of way so many times for this? I don’t know how much longer I can deal with this pain. I’m afraid I will loose the implant and then I will be left without a lower bridge in my mouth.

I am very young (under 30) and I cannot walk around and work without teeth and I also can’t enjoy life with this pain. I paid every cent I had saved for this procedure to change my life, and It did.

It looks great but It feels so horrible. Please someone help :(

    Pain after implants
    by: Stacey Norrell, RDH

    Pain that lasts more than just a few days after implant placement can mean there is a problem. There are a number of things that could be causing this discomfort, but since you said that the bone and tissue around the implant seem to be healing properly it leads me to a few possible conclusions.

    If an implant is placed to close to a nerve or is a actually touching a nerve then there will be consistent pain and this will not subside without removing the implant. I hope this is not the case for you.

    Another problem could be the angle the implant or crown was placed. If the upper and lower teeth are not occluding (biting) together properly it can cause pain as well. Your dentist may be able to “adjust your bite” if this is the problem. This is a simple procedure that would involve slightly altering the shape of the crown or the opposing natural tooth so that they do not put unnecessary pressure on the implants.
