SEVERE pain above dental implant
I have SEVERE pain above dental implant - tooth 10
Two weeks ago I had 6 implants with bone grafts put in. Three on the right side and 3 on the left (Teeth 10, 17 and 18 on left). The right side teeth have had no problem. However, my entire left side has been in constant agony. My surgeon removed implants 17 & 18 thinking that would solve the issue. It has not. For the last two nights I have been in agony. I have had pain on the upper left and the doctor checked to see if I needed a root canal on any of them and the tests were negative (Endodondist checked them).
Now I appear to have swelling above implant #10 about 1 inch above the implant adjacent to the base of my nose just below my left eye. My teeth on the upper left all hurt but the real pain seems to be coming from this swollen area.
I do not have a fever nor any bad taste in my mouth. My surgeon said the implant looks fine and did not break through to the sinus cavity.
Does this sound like I have an infection that could be treated by antibiotics or should the implant be removed?
