I just had dental implants in my upper and my lower and it has been a week and I have pain in my upper and can't put my teeth in(dentures) and I also have a white something hanging from my gum.

Do yo think it is packing or live tissue??
Can I snip it off?

Wait for tissue to heal
by: Dr Farhan Durrani

Wait for tissue to heal - one week is too short of a time to wear your dentures and ask your dentist to put a soft tissue reliner on undersurface of the denture before you start wearing it, as it may harm your tissues as well as implant
The white thing may be the healing tissue so wait - it might go away. Don?t wear the denture now ?no matter what!
Use peridex very frequently as it is an antiseptic and it may lessen your discomfort.
Also show the tissue to your dentist or post a picture(scan it) here for me to see.
