Was my problem due to crown and gum not joining together?
(albert lea mn USA)
I had implant done on molar and I could slide dental floss under the tooth all the way to the abutment. I told the dentist that this did not seem right but he said it was OK. I have had to go back three times in less than two years because the crown was loose. The last time he sent me back to the periodontist who had put implant in. I had a severe infection which caused the implant to loosen.
My guess is that a food particle got under the crown and caused infection. Perio pulled the crown and cleaned out infection and sewed it up. I'm going to have implants done in four months and crown later. Was my problem due to crown and gum not joining together?
