Extreme pain when the abutments and crowns were put on the implants


(New York)

I had implants placed in January '08. Upper left (tooth # 13 & 14). I also had bone grafting and a sinus lift. I waited a year later and had my abutments and crowns put on. I was in Extreme pain when the abutments and crowns were put on the implants(felt like it was in the sinuses), but tried to wait it out for 3 weeks and finally had to get them off and put the healing caps back on.

No pain as soon as the healing caps were put back on. Waited about another year without pain and then tried the same thing and tremendous pain. This is now my third attempt 4/13/12 to put the abutments and crowns on and the pain is back. It really feels like it's in my sinuses, but I don't have any sinus problems (ruled out)...only when the abutment and crowns are placed.

Could it be that the abutments were screwed on too tight. Everything looks good on the x-ray. I went and had many opinions and no one has an answer because they were not the ones to do the job. I had many offers to have them re-do it, but I can't afford it, and who knows if I wouldn't have the same problem.

Can you PLEASE offer any advice? I'm ready to get the healing abutments back in and a removable bridge. I'm desperate.

Pain with Abutments and Crowns NEW
by: Sharon B., RDH

Your question is very similar to another one that was just asked. I personally believe that your symptoms are associated with one of the following possibilities...I would explore each one with your oral surgeon/dentist/MD.

1. The abutments and crowns are being placed before appropriate healing around the implant has happened with the bone, making it very sensitive to biting pressure now that a crown is placed.

2. The occlusion on the crowns is not correct, or the crown is too large in another way, making excess pressure between the other teeth or when you are biting down.

3. The implant has somehow ruptured through the sinus cavity when pressure is being applied during chewing on the crown.

I wonder if the implant crown area is too large in the area where the crown meets the abutment screw. I had severe pain with my temporary implant of #10. My dentist and an oral surgeon could not find anything wrong. I went in to have the implant removed because I could not deal with the pain. T.he dental assistant suggested reducing the size of the temporary crown under the gum. I did not think that an oversized crown could generate so much pain. It did not seem to me to be in the gum area. The pain is a dull, hot , throbbing, pain. Anyway, to my suprise it seems to be the solution.I just want to let anyone that is having undiagnosed pain with an implant that they may wish to look into this.

Dental Implant = extreme constant nerve pain. NEW
by: Anonymous

I developed extreme pain when the abutment was put in the dental implant. The abutment perforated into my sinus. My oral surgeon told me I have nerve damage and will have constant nerve pain for the rest of my life. The pain is extreme even though I'm on Gralise (extended release of neurontin). The pain is sharp, nauseating and constant.

Before I had the procedure, my oral surgeon reassured me that I had plenty of bone and I was an excellent candidate for an implant. He was wrong.

Please don't get a dental implant!

I had two an abutments placed in my lower jaw, also a wisdom tooth extracted at the same time, one is perfect, no pain but the bigger one is very painful not the abutment it's self but the gum tissue all around it. The dr gave me two rounds of antibiotic and a round of steroids to bring the inflammation down, it's been one month and one week and the pain is coming back. I don't know what to do. If the abutment is removed can another be put in correctly? And can my problem be fixed?

I have been told after the crown on my implant was put on that the crown can be removed and replaced if there is a problem. I also have pain after the crown was put on and I also had pain when he tried it on 2 days ago, but the dentist simply did not think that something may be wrong and I am wondering about this.

You don’t worry my friend. It is not much serious. If you have much pain after the crown put on the implants, you just consult your dentist and inform him about the issue. He will be able to adjust the crown and thus you will get a relief from the pain. Meaningful Use Attestation

Trigeminal caused by dental procedure NEW
by: Nikos

Hello Pam and everyone else!
A catastrophic 12 implant full mouth restoration caused me pain symptoms like most of you. My physician diagnosed(finally after 2 years!) that it is Trigeminal Neuralgia(TN). I am in the process of removing all 12 implants hoping that the pain will go away. I have created a Facebook group for victims of dental procedure, you are welcome to join to exchange thoughts, experiences and try to leverage from each other. I would love to see you there.....cheers and Happy New Year

I'm in the same shoes NEW
by: Bill

So interesting that some people are having the same issue. No sinus pressure until the final crown was put on top of abutment. Ever since the crown was put in, I have been feeling pressure or dull pain in my sinus. I know it is sinus because the pressure/dullness is amplified in that same spot when I blow nose.

Can anyone think of why simply placing a crown over implant makes me feel this way ? Some people surmised abutment being too "tight". Well what does it mean to have abutment screwed on too tight ?
