Both my upper and lower left and right teeth are implants. I have paid a crown dentist $70,000 up front for any and all work.
I have no p;ain or problems on the left side of my jaw but on the right side my upper implant restorations (crowns) are shaped differently, causing severe gum pain, irritation and inflammation.
The area of crowns that meet the gum are very different from the right. The crowns are just flat.... no shape or contour. I also had a lower right bone graft that is always in pain, is constantly swollen.
My swollen lymph nodes in my neck are so large that it prevents me from swallowing anything from food to water. I am scheduled to get 3 more implants into these painful bone grafts. ...Visitor from VA
Before you have any additional treatment, I suggest you see the surgeon who placed the graft to treat the swelling.
You also need to consult the dentist to relieve the pain from the crowns.
In addition, it is imperative that throughout this you are brushing your teeth twice daily with a Sonicare tooth brush.
