Soreness of the gum above the two front teeth
by Michael Tyas
I had four implants done in my upper jaw which support eight teeth. The two front teeth are bridged to an implant either side of them, but there seems to be a gap above the teeth and below the gum where slight amounts of food and drink get through and also air can be sucked through the small gap.
The dentist said the gum should grow over the small gap, but it is nine weeks since the work was completed and the gum above the two front teeth is very sore. I had two bone grafts in that area and since that time I have also been having sinus and nasal problems, but the main problem is the soreness of the gum above the two front teeth.
Can you help?
