Implants: I had premolar implants placed about 1 year ago, with the crowns placed about 6 months ago. I have had some bleeding at the gum line.

My dentist and oral surgeon (periodontist) who is highly recommended, have both seen me but don't seem too concerned. Everything I read, however, says this is a sign of peri implantitis.

I do have good oral hygiene but I am still worried and not sure of what my next step should be. Any advice? ... Visitor from Steubenville OH

As a general rule, new dental implants and crowns should not cause bleeding. It could be due to simple pinching of the gum tissue which would be likely related to the physical characteristics of the new crowns.

The fact you are not getting suitable answers from your treatment specialists is disheartening. Contact your State Dental Board for guidance. You shouldn't be having these problems.
