Dental Implants Ask The Dentist Richard Winter Question:
Dental Implant Pain: I had a tooth implanted about a year and a half ago.

It had been fine for a while. But recently it had been throbbing and when I push on it, either on accident with one of my teeth or with my finger, it stings.

Currently I have braces on and it had been moving my implanted tooth too, but it had stopped. But even though the tooth had stopped moving because of the braces, it still hurts.

What is wrong? ...Visitor from MA

Implants don't move unless they are getting loose from bone loss or infected.

Why are you having braces?

The implant may be used to provide an anchor for moving other teeth-called anchorage. If your implant tooth hurts it is either in traumatic occlusion-hitting too hard or hitting prematurely before your other teeth.

It could have bone loss around it or there could be a peri-implantitis or gum infection around the implant. Go to the dentist doing your braces, have them check your bite and adjust it as needed. Describe your pain and symptoms so they can get the necessary x-rays and evaluate your problem comprehensively.

Asking a question like this online can not lead to an answer - you must go to the dentist(s) involved in your care and explore this issue immediately. Best of luck
