Pressure and uncomfortable nerve sensations

Ten days after large lower jaw molar implant – on fifth day some pain, pressure and uncomfortable nerve sensations in adjacent teeth in lower jaw which have not really stopped. Scan shows good distance between adjacent tooth and post. no numbness. Good healing and gums pink. Stitches removed . Dentist ( specialist ) said this was not of concern at this stage and to treat with pain killers which I am doing. Neurofen works best but he does not recommend this as may affect bone healing so mainly on panadol with middling effect.

How long would this be normal to experience and what is the likely cause?

    Ozzie,

    Though the xrays are showing adequate space between the implant post and adjacent teeth, the post may be close enough to a nerve to have it aggrivated. With the sensations you are having I would guess that the implant is not actually touching the nerve or has caused any nerve damage since you are having no issues with numbness.

    This should settle down within a few weeks. If the pressure or nerve sensations are not slowly getting better then follow up with your oral surgeon and ask if there is any chance the implant is close enough to a nerve to cause pain and what should be done. Chances are this will resolve on it’s own.
