Sustained nerve pain
Over the past 2 years I have had 4 molars placed in my lower jaw and am in the process of finishing up 8 dental implants in the maxilla, 4 on each side. The implants are in the 11,12,13,14, and 6,5, 4,3. I am 2 weeks into the healing process with the maxillary implants.
I have been told by multiple medical professionals that I heal exceptionally fast and have had minimal problems. I seem to be having an issue with a maxillary nerve. The implant placed next to 10 seems to be causing sustained nerve pain in and around 10 when irritated. 10 is root canaled and capped, so there is no tooth nerve to irritate, but when it flairs, it feels as if I am suffering from an abscess of that tooth. The pain is brought on by minimal chewing with my partial in place.
I generally quite it down with 2 Aleve in about 1/2 hour.
My 2 questions are:
1.) Is the above described nerve pain a common issue?
2.) Does this issue resovle itself with additional healing?
I forgot to mention that I had sinus lifts on both side with at least 6 months of healing before the implants were placed. I am just finishing a cycle of antibiotics and prednisone.
Thanking you in advance for your answers.
