Gum blistering at dental implant
(Key West, FL)
Gum blistering at dental implant:
I had a crown with rod placed about 9 months ago. After about 4-5 months my gum in that location had a swelling like a blister. It would periodically come and go but now it's there consistently. Occasionally it busts and sends blood into my mouth. There is no pain associated with this, just discomfort in that area. Also, there seems to be a different taste/feeling in my mouth all the time, as if I've just drank a glass of milk or eaten something like cream.
The procedure costs lots of money and lots of pain. I'm not feeling very trusting of dentists, as none of them in recent years have attempted to educate me before a procedure. Do you think I should pay to have this taken care of, or is it the dentists responsibility to fix the problem? I am unemployed and uninsured.
Thanks for your answers.
