Gap under implant bridge
I received nine dental implants 10 months ago. Everything has healed well and on Tuesday I had a four tooth bridge cemented to three implants. The back tooth is cantilevered because there wasn't enough space to place a fourth implant.(They are my four lower back teeth.) I had to wait three days for the cement to cure before eating on that side.
Now that I'm able to eat on that side, I've found there is a gap under implant bridge. It goes right through from one side to the other. I can get an interproximal dental brush through the gap very easily. The problem is that food gets trapped in there and I'm having to swish water around my mouth between each mouthful of food to dislodge it. Sometimes that doesn't work and I have to use the interproximal brush.
This is very annoying and not at all what I expected. Is it normal and if not is there anything that can be done about it? I don't want to be dealing with this for the rest of my life. Also, the molars above the implants are quite sore. I think this is probably because it's been years since they had anything opposing them.
Will this settle in time?
Thanks in advance for your help.
