Pain in nostril after dental implant

User Level:

Posted by: Katerine  (6 years ago)
I had a dental implant surgery yesterday. Before that I had a sinus lift and bone craft in July, as my previous dental,implant rejected after a year due to thin bone. Yesterday evening i noticed the pain in my nostril on the same side where implant was placed. Plus my healthy tooth which is next to implant hurts as well. Last year when I did implant I didn't experience the same pain. Could it be due to that dentist did something wrong and pierced my sinus? I am whole day on painkillers today but pain is still bad.

Usually, but not always, when the sinus in preforated there is some slight bleeding from the nose.

I did a rather long premolar replacement implant a couple of weeks ago, and the patient got a transitory pain just behind the nose, similar to yours. Don't know what caused it, but she is OK now.

The only way to tell if the implant was placed into the sinus is to do a dental CAT scan.

Another possibility is the adjacent tooth flared up coincidentally at the same time.

These problems require detective work to solve. You should return to the dentist who placed the implant for follow up. If he doesn't know, perhaps he should remove the implant before it integrates, and graft. You must be getting tired of surgery by now!

Thank you very much for your reply, I really appreciate that. My pain in nostril gone but tooth still hurts when I press on it. Do you think it may settle after couple of days on its own ? Today is only third day after surgery.

Sorry for the delay in answering. I was in Spain last week.

If the pain does not start to abate a week post-op, you should be re-evaluated by the surgeon.

you must have second opinion from your dentist as it if takes more than 14 days and still pain persist its problematic .you must visit the implantologist rather than delaying it further...
