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