Dental Implant Pain

User Level:
Posted by: flossAgain  (10 years ago)

Hello all,

I’ve got dental implants before without any problem. Eight months ago, I got another one to replace my lower left first molar. Right after it was fitted in, I started to be in pain. I went back to the oral surgeon to tell him about my pain. After he checked it out, he said he could not find anything wrong. The implant was fitted pretty well. He asked me to use soft floss to get rid of any bacteria that maybe trapped in there. I did this but the pain got worse after a week. What could be the reason for this? How can I get rid of the pain? I cannot afford another implant. I would be thankful for any thoughts you could give me.
