Worried that I’ve waited too long to restore implant.
I have had implants put in back in January 2011. I now have a temporary abutment in but I have yet to return to my dentist to have the permanent abutment and crown inserted.
My question is: can I cause any damage to the surrounding areas? I’m a smoking on and off and have started back 9 months after the surgery, I have also gotten gum grapht and I think my smoking may cause a problem with the fitting of the perm crown.
Should I be worried? I have scheduled an appointment to have the permanent abutment and crown inserted but I’m now worried that I’ve waited too long to restore implant.
What do you think?
