Possible problem with implant.
The purple of the gum doesnt look as purple in the picture as it is in real life but still can see some of it ... and the fact that the tooth has moved a little...
Hello, I am a 29 year old female. I got a dental implant when I was 19 due to a missing tooth that was never formed. it's the upper third tooth to the left. My implant is good, it doesn't hurt, it has never been lose nothing. However, I have noticed that with the years, (it has been 10 years) it has slightly moved a little, however that is not the problem, the problem is that the gum area has never been pink it has always been kind of blue / purple.
They told me at first that it was bruising from the surgery, but as months and years went by it never got pink and I kind of stopped paying attention to it because it feels good, nothing seems to be wrong other than the color of my gum.
I recently went to the dentist for a cleaning and asked my doctor about the implant. He basically told me that my gum was thinning and that my implant could be exposed if it continued, that the color was due to the color of the implant which is metal. I asked what could be done, and he said "nothing"
Please, I am really scared - I have been through a lot because of my teeth - I really need help and advice on what to do about this issue.
What do you think my problem is?
How can I fix it?
Does it really have no solution?
