I had two dental implants fitted to the bottom left of my mouth, the back teeth five and six. There is a gap between the bottom of crown six and the gum where food gets trapped. I am always flossing the area which leaves the area feeling strange. The floss has got trapped on occassion when it reaches the titanium post. The dentist said the gum would eventually fill the space within two months, already been one month. How can a gum grow up to meet a crown? The gum is completley healed now. My dentist said the implant was fitted too high and the gum will never fill the space. What is your opinion?
