Bone Grafts Ask The Dentist Ara Nazarian Question:
Reversal of Implants - Bovine Bone and sinus lift: About 3 months ago I had a left sinus lift, bovine bone grafting and 2 titanium implants on my upper left side. I was fine for one week.

Then I got an infection and had two rounds of antibiotics. I've been in pain ever since. It feels like terrible pressure in the left sinus area or nerve pain, plus right and left tight burning aching pain.

I've been to an ENT, CT-Scan, Neuro, GP and nothing shows. I'm living in pain everday. I have scheduled a reversal with the oral surgeon because I am desperate.

He will take out the implants, bovine bone and then bring the sinus back down. I am scared out of my mind. What are my options? It's making me sick.

Am I having a foreign substance reaction? ...Visitor from NY

Without an xray or picture it is difficult to say, however, did you also go through a course of decongesants with your antibiotic?

Sometimes patients feel a pressure or burning with the increased pressure build up. But if you have already gone through a series of tests with all the specialists and no resolution, this may be the best solution.

Some people, very few, can have a reaction to the metal.

A Nazarian, DDS
