Yes, ask your general dentist to refer you back to the implant dentist. As Henrius has said, it may be possible to carry out a small grafting procedure to help things. The...

It may take a few days to settle down if the problem was due to the crown being bitten on too much. It's a bit like hitting your thumb with a hammer; you can get rid of the cause,...
