Dental Implant Abutments
I was wondering if it is standard procedure for the Dentist to use one kind of an abutment when he first puts it in and a different one once the time comes to get the crown.
He told me that the reason they put the shorter abutment when he first did the procedure was because he did not want it to move. So when I went to get fitted for the crown they said they had to remove that abutment I had because my molar was going to be to big for it and it would fall off.
I was panicking because I did not want to do the whole procedure again and the assistant said "Oh don't worry we just have to unscrew the top not the whole thing." That was a lie, they took out the whole thing and I was really upset because I have had horrible experiences with Dentists and here was another. They said it should not hurt at all, but it did. I mean it wasn't excrutiating pain but it wasn't comfortable either.
My question is, Is it standard procedure to take out the abutment to put a longer one in and if so should it hurt a little? I healed for about 2 months and a half when they did this to me.
