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?

Restoration Time NEW

It is not too late to have your permanent crown placed on the implant. Thankfully implants do not decay as a tooth in need of a crown would. Yes, they can develop gum disease, gum recession and attachment loss...but this would typically due to poor oral hygiene. You mentioned that you smoke, and yes, smoking is not good for your oral health and could cause the gum graft to fail and encourage gum recession. Smoking causes the blood vessels to atrophy and then nutrients cannot get to the tissues to keep them healthy. However, this should not effect whether or not you can place a crown on your existing implant, so I would do that right away.

I just have one thing to say. Do not wait for something to happen when it comes to handling such issues. And always seek the help of a Dentist rather than for a normal doctor. I have seen people do this at times. click
