Infected Implant

User Level:
Posted by: newmiss  (9 years ago)
Dear Doctor,

I had four upper implants done about three years ago. Unfortunately, one of my front teeth had a slight infection and I was given antibiotics. After the course of treatment, there was no more pain and everything went fine. Two weeks ago, I had a sinus infection. I was put on antibiotics again. However, until now it seems I am not cleared up yet. I also noticed a foul odor coming from the implants. Is the sinus infection related to the implants? Does it sound like my implants are infected? What can I do if this is the case?

Thank you for your time!

In this case is best to be seen by your dentist so that he can take a radiograph (xray) and see if there is a problem with the implants.

Many thanks, Doc. Alejandro! I will definitely request an xray on the implants.
