Bleeding after abutment placement, and changing caps
Bleeding after abutment placement, and changing caps:
I had my implants (3)placed on October last year. The surgery was ok. Last week, on Thursday the implants were uncovered and the abutment was attached. This second small surgery went well, but after 2 hours, at home, I started to bleed very much. I made compression with cotton like my dentist advice me to, but the bleeding persisted.
I went again to the practice, he was surprised with so many blood and clots, cleaned the gums and decided to replace the caps. He told me it could be caused because the caps post were too tight and also decided to change them for an other size, bigger than the previous ones. He said, that maybe they were too small and have been injured the gums. (I hope this was the reason.)
As soon as he changed them, after 5 minutes I stopped bleeding.
What is your opinion about that?
I have an other question: today I realize that one of the caps is missing, I was brushing carefully my teeth, and after finish I noticed that. What can happen without this protection? I have a new appointment next week on Tuesday to make the impressions for the crowns, should I wait until there or go as soon as possible?
