Dental Implants Ask The Dentist Ara Nazarian Question:
Implant Failures: I have just had 2 implants placed in my lower jaw. One failed almost right away, pain then it felt loose, dentist pulled it out without effort.

The other is still there but I am noticing a slight acidic taste as well as some extra saliva. Its been doing this since it was put in 6 weeks ago. Its not loose or anything, should I worry, or is this normal?

I am scheduled to have another put in next week on the other side. I am a little nervous and do not want to spend the money if I am still having problems or at a risk of rejection.

My question? is the one that was already installed starting to fail, or is the slight acidic taste, a little pain on occasion, and the extra saliva normal? ...Visitor from Ontario Canada

Nobody knows your body like you.

If you feel something is wrong, I would suggest speaking with your provider to see what is going on. Usually if you tap on an implant, you should not have pain or discomfort.

Without an xray or radiograph it is difficult to say, however, I'm sure you dental provider will address any of your concerns.

A Nazarian, DDS
