Bone fragments sticking up??

Bone fragments sticking up:

I had mini dental implants recently and around two of the implants I've noticed bone shards sricking up around the implants, which have been irritating the gums around the implants. When I asked the dentist assistant about this she claimed this is normal. It's been a month now and the irritation seems to be getting worse! Logically speaking I would think the bone fragments/slivers/shards would comprimise the stability of the implants.

Should I just ignore and put up with the irritation and soon it will go away or should I question them???

Thank you, Joan, P. N.

Bone frag and cricked teeth
by: Anonymous

When I got my implants, I had pieces of bone coming through the top of my gums where they did the bone grafting. The dentist said this was normal and went up in and ground the bone down and cleaned it out.

Then it happened again. He did it again, the problem is now the gum is way high in that area and food gets caught up there. Now they say to fix that they would have to do a graphing from the roof of my mouth to bring the gum down. This was a few years back and I keep a tooth pick handy. Not sure if it was the dentists fault but I'm not going back there.

Now I believe it is 3 years later and notice my top teeth in the front are getting cracked, is this from the implants?

I think I have bone fragments NEW
by: beto

I had 2 implants 5 weeks ago to cover an area of 3 teeth between upper right canine and a lone moler that helps hold my partial. I had a sinus lift grafting one year ago and bone was solid. I went in on week 2 and it was discovered that there was and infection. He opened it up again and re-traumatized the area by cleaning it out and deep injections that hurt to holy hell. A course of antibiotics seemed to do the trick and infection gone and bone looks good still. However, I have a tender area between the implants and toward the back and there appears to be a bonny protrusion there. I can't wear my partial for eating or, leave it in too long (the type of implants that don't get crowns till 4 month pass). This sore protrusion is really the only point of pain and discomfort. I wager the source of the infection came from this. Does this sound like a bone fragment trying to surface? I really want these to work but can't go on without a partial. It was getting better and now a little worse. I hope there is a simple explanation and solution.
