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.

Why is there a discrepancy between the healing times for dental implants?

March 25th, 2012
Q.
I have 3 implants already, which were place in RSA. The healing time for 2 was 4 weeks, for the other 8 weeks, as there was infection present. Here in the UK most dentists specify a healing period of 4 to 6 months before final crown placement. I do not understand the difference between these healing times, as my SA implants have taken just fine.,

Should I get implant immediate loading or have longer healing time?

March 3rd, 2012
Q.
I currently have a bridge on my front teeth this was fitted 15 years ago when i had the two front teeth removed. I have decided to have implants as the bridge has failed and the supporting teeth are infected. I have had two consultations, the first dentist said that the teeth would be removed and due to the fact that i have a high smile line i would wait 3-6 months for the site to heal. Then the implants would be placed and then there would be another 3-6month wait before the permanant bridge could be fitted to the implants. During this time i would wear an adhesive bridge. This seemed like a long time so i had a second consultation with another dentist, this time i was told that the teeth could be removed and the implants placed with immediate loading of temp teeth for 3-6 months before permanant bridge fitted, despite telling the dentist that i do tend to grind and clench my teeth when sleeping. I am now very confused as to which is the best option as both dentists have advised such different methods. I have read that immediate loading can be quite high risk of failure because there should be no movement as the area is healing. I just assumed that i would have implants placed straight away then wear a temporary bridge that does not put pressure on the area that is healing. Any advice, i don’t want to end up paying for another consultation.,

Pain is worse after artificial bone graft. Is implant problem one that will resolve itself?

December 22nd, 2011
Q.
I had a dental implant following root canal treatment on my front tooth which went wrong. The area under my nose remained sore even afer a few years of having the implant. I kept returning to the implant centre and was told everything was okay, however a few months ago I again returned and was informed that I would need an artificial bone graft. This was carried out 3 months ago. I have more pain than before now and the gum line has receeded showing some of the metal of the implant. It is uncomfortable and sore. My dentist said to see her again in 6 weeks and she would consider sending me to the hospital (which I requested). I’m concerned about returning to the implant centre as I have been going for around 2.5 years and the problem has just worsened. I have three questions really. If there is damage to the area can it be repaired? – I can’t sleep at night sometimes because I am worried that it will deteriorate so badly that I lose all my top teeth and the bone too. The second question is who can I turn to for advice as soon as possible to stop any further problems? My last question is – could it be just normal to be experiencing such discomfort – should I just wait longer for it to heal. Many thanks for your time ,

Q.
I need to have a tooth out because it has cracked badly and I am researching implants. I want to save up rather than take out a loan and wondered if an implant can be done at any stage after the tooth extraction?,
