How long do I wait for my crowns

by Shirley

How long do I wait for my crowns?

Hi, I had my two front teeth pulled and a bone graft done and they went ahead and put my implants in. I have a temporary now that is working out just fine. How long do you have to wait to get your crowns ?
Is 3 1/2 months too soon ?
Am I better to wait 6 months to make sure everything has healed right ?

These are teeth # 7 & 8 on top, so I don't want to take a chance on anything happening to them. I've heard you have to be more careful with top teeth as you don't want to load them to soon.

Thanking you in advance for any help with this.

Eating after implants.

by Paul
(Valencia, CA )

Eating after implants. -

I just had an implant installed. Two posts but one crown to act for two teeth. Lower left molars. Now that the final is put in, when I eat, so much food becomes lodged at the base and where the implants meet my real teeth on both sides.

I feel too much space in a pyramid shaped at the gum meeting the teeth. I was told by the dentist that it was normal, that implants are balloon shaped. It doesn’t feel right and is not enjoyable when eating. it's a big job to clean the implants after eating. I’m trying to be open minded and maybe get use to it, but my gut feeling says it’s wrong.

I feel it should be like normal teeth if not better. I know food will get between, but the amount is too much. Any advice? Please confirm.

How long should it be between the implant surgery and the install of the crowns?

How long should it be between the implant surgery and the install of the crowns? We have been told two different things from two different surgeons. One that does only the implants and one that will do both the implants and the crowns.

Tooth extracted with an implant inserted immediately

by mary
(pa)

I had my upper premolar #5 tooth extracted with an implant inserted immediately along with the abutment and temp 17 days ago. Recently, the pain is so intense I can't think. I'm taking advil every few hours. I returned to my periodontist who told me my X-ray looked good as did my gum. He told me if I continued to get worse then to return in another week.

I can't even speak I'm in so much pain. I think it could be a nerve but not sure.

Two weeks after Bicon implant - feeling a little sensitive

by mark
(scotland)

I received a Bicon implant 2 weeks ago. All went well however over the last few days the area of implant is a little sensitive - more like if you had sensitive teeth after eating ice cream.

Any idea what the issue might be?

Can one experience discomfort after nearly seven months

by sabina
(london)

I had two implants placed in my lower jaw this year, in decemebr. Had them done from a quite well known implantologist in London. I still suffer from some discomfort.

I went to a different dentist, in Italy, and asked if he thought the job was badly done. He said that, in his opinion, one of the two implants was placed at an angle. I went back to my dentist in London, he took x-rays and said that my implants are doing very well, they look well attached to the bone and that it would be a pity to remove them.

Can one experience discomfort after nearly seven months?
I am getting quite desperate. I spent 6000 pounds and it just doesn't feel quite right. There is no infection or anything. many thanks for sharing your experiences.
