Upper right canine dental implant
Upper right canine dental implant came out - what should I do?
Last April I had a bone grapht and they later installed the dental implant for my upper right canine tooth. I started noticing little hard pieces of bone-like material that would be in my gum and I could usually pull them out with tweezers. they usually had a little piece of what looked like frozen skin, pink and sometimes with a smear of blood. It didn't hurt,but it was just weird.
Then after one came out dead center over my implant, a hole was left behind. It proceeded to get bigger and more bone -like hard little pieces would come out. and I know I waited too long to get back to the dentist, but the whole implant,shiny screw and all came out through the front of the gum, not the bottom.(never hurt but I knew something was wrong).
My dentist took out the implant and added more bone graft material. And I have about 15 stitches covering the area of gum that it came through. Is it possible that I maybe not a candidate for implants? It seems my body is rejecting the bone and obviously didn't want to keep the implant in either;
