Implant Protrudes Into Sinus Cavity
(Denton, Texas, USA)
I had an implant in number 14 a year ago. I have not had the abutment because I still have pain. On the x-ray I see that the implant protrudes into the sinus cavity quite a bit. Can that cause the pain and what can be done about it.
Why would an oral surgeon do that? He did not discuss this with me. I asked if he would have to do a sinus lift and he said no. He said I had plenty of bone without that and then I guess he must have punctured the sinus membrane. I was in a lot of pain after the prodedure.
