My Gums are Bleeding Following Implant Treatment, What Should I Do?

June 7th, 2015
Q.

Hello, I’m hoping you can give me some advice. I had my implants put in about 2 months ago and am aware that they take long than this to fully heal, but my mouth is in a lot of pain. It hurts to eat or even open my mouth, and the gums are bleeding quite a lot.My dentist hasn’t been brilliant when it comes to giving me advice on this, all he does is tell me which pain killers to try.What do you think I should do about this?

The Gum Underneath My Implant is Swollen. Why Might This Be?

May 23rd, 2015
Q.

Hi there, thank you for taking the time to read my question. I am a 46 year old female in good health. I had 2 upper implants fitted 6 years ago, and although they’ve been great up to now, the gum underneath one of them is swollen and quite painful. I’m able to eat things without much discomfort and the gum doesn’t appear to be bleeding but I would like to know what’s wrong. I’d really appreciate any advice you may have. Thank you Dr McGovern.

I’m About To Have An Implant Put In. Will It Hurt?

March 15th, 2015
Q.

Hi Dr McGovern. I’m about to have an implant put in as I have a missing tooth. I’m pretty scared of dentists and tend to get a bit panicky when I go, so I’m really nervous now!! Will it hurt? I’ve got a low pain threshold so I’m scared it’s really going to hurt me. And will my mouth swell up afterwards? I don’t want that!

My Mum Has Got Pain In Her Gums. Is There Any Chance Food Could Be Trapped Under Her Implants?

November 27th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Fahey, my mum got implants a few years ago but she is getting pain on the top front teeth (first 6). Her gum line is red and there is a high temperature.What could have resulted in this? Is it dangerous? Does she need to go back to the dentist or does she have to use cream to relieve the pain. As I mentioned she had the implants done probably around 2 years ago. Is it possible for the teeth to have moved out of place, because she is worried whether they have moved and food has gone to the gums and she is scared this might result to an infection. She has had this for about a month. Thank you for taking your time to read my message, I hope you have time to respond. Thank you.

My New Implants Need Time To Heal But I Can’t Eat Or Drink And My Dentist Isn’t Helpful. Should I Seek A Second Opinion?

October 9th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. I had my implants placed around 4 weeks ago. I know you’re supposed to give them at least 6 months to heal but this is impossible. I can’t eat a thing, I can’t open my mouth, my gums are bleeding and my dentist is offering me no advice. He keeps brushing me off and just keeps recommending different pain killers. I don’t feel he’s being very attentive at all. Can you please offer me some advice regarding this matter? Should I seek a second opinion? Thank you.

After Dental Implant Treatment, I’ve Experienced Gum To Jaw Discomfort. How Long Does It Take To Heal?

October 2nd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Bohara, I could really do with some good advice from a professional such as yourself. I lost my tooth around 2 months ago, and my dentist put an implant in two weeks ago. But it was inserted a little deep, so it touched the nerve. He removed it and put a short one just 3 days after.
The numbness from bottom left teeth, gum to jaw give me discomfort. I hope it’s not permanent damage, but wonder how long will it take this nerve damage cure? Thank you in advance for any information you can provide me with.

I Have An Implant Which Aches Occasionally. What Could Be The Cause Of This?

July 19th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore, my problem is that I have an implant that aches off and on. It has ached occasionally for the last 18 months. It has been in place for four years. I need it to be used as part of a bridge since the tooth next to it is missing. The missing tooth is one of the implants that came out. There is not enough bone left to put another implant in. Do you think something is wrong with the implant?
What would make it ache in this way. It only does it occasionally. I originally had four implants and so far three of them came out. I had bone grafting as well and the grafting has now deteriorated. Thank you in advance for your reply. I hope you can help me with this.

The Implants I Got Abroad Have Become Infected, What Should I Do?

April 14th, 2014
Q.

A dentist abroad fitted my upper jaw with implants and bone grafts two and a half years ago and in that time I have had constant chronic sore gum at the front of my mouth where the bone grafts were done. When i went back to them they just kept telling me nothing was wrong and there is no problem, I said obviously there is a problem, my gum is constantly seriously sore and my nose is constantly discharging fluid. I went to an oral surgeon and nasal surgeon and in their opinion there is infection where the grafts were done. I contacted the company again and was told they would fix the problem if I paid the final payment I owed of £1500, I said I would pay the money when I was satisfied, but you have left me in constant pain and also they said there was no problem, so how could they fix it. Because this treatment was done in Bratislava, the NHS in the UK will not touch it and neither UK dental surgeons. I need help, this is ruining my life. What should I do?

I am experiencing normal side-effects of dental implant surgery?

December 10th, 2012
Q.

I had an implant fitted 3 months ago and although It appeared to settle down after 3 doses of antibiotics, Although I still felt my gums and throat sore. I then had my new denture fittedbut could not stand the pain it caused. My tongue felt as if it was being pinched and starting to go numb. The dentist practically had to file the denture down completely on one side. This did help but the other problem I was experinceing was pain at the base of the tooth next to the implant which was like someone hitting a raw nerve when I tried to brush my teeth. The dentist said this was caused by a rogue nerve and took this tooth out also.Tthis resulted in a dry socket which again is very painful . It is starting to get better but my gums and throught still feel sore and I now have a horrible taste of iron in my mouth and it is very dry. Have you heard of these side affects before?

I am experiencing some pressure from an Implant I had fitted 7 years ago, should I be worried?

November 30th, 2012
Q.

Hi, about 7 years ago I had a bone graft followed by an upper lateral incisor implant done. I periodically experience pain above the actual implant. The type of pain is like an ache and increases when I press on the upper gums. The pain also radiates behind my nose. Could this type of pain just be sinus pressure, or could it be directly related to the implant procedure? The implant seems quite solid and strong, however bone loss is always a concern for me since the bone graft procedure. However, I’m only 25 years old. The gums look quite healthy from what I can tell. Any help or advice you can provide would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
