Dental Implants Ask The Dentist Edward Leventhal Question:
Implant Hurts: I had an implant with bone graft done one year ago.

There was no pain and no difficulty until the final tooth was put into place 3 months ago. Bite has been adjusted and x-rays show all is fine. Pain continues.

Pain feels like a spring clothespin is clipped onto my gum. It feels like the tooth part has been put on too tightly. Is this possible? My dentist says no. Migrain headaches have increased. ...Visitor from VA

There are a few possibilities causing you pain that may not show up on xray.

1. Gingival tissue is pinched between the abutment and the implant.
2. Gingiva tissue is pinched between the abutment and the crown.
3. The crown is high and hits slightly before your other teeth.

If pain persists and dentist says all is fine, you need to find another dentist fot a second opinion.
