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

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.

Hello and thank you for contacting me. She needs to see her dentist or the surgeon to have this checked out as there should not be pain if all is well. You shouldn’t wait longer than a week if pain is present as it could result in infection. I hope all goes well. Best wishes, Dr Nick Fahey.
