Do tooth implants hurt

Common Questions and Answers about Do tooth implants hurt


Avatar m tn there are dentists that do implants everywhere. your regular dentist should have recommended the option to you since you have a tooth that cant be used. implants are expensive and many insurances dont cover them. i need one for a molar and between the implant (the post put in your jawbone) and the crown (the tooth that screws on it) the cost was around $5000. this changes with the type of tooth being replaced and what part of the country you live in. the front teeth are cheaper.
1058622 tn?1254346187 (I have bad teeth in my family, my father had an abcess tooth not too long ago, though I do brush every day). I will not have proper coverage for atleast another week. Can you tell me if you think it is an abcessed tooth? I'm worried! Also, if I have the tooth extracted, is there anything I can do, like a large cap or something to alow the normal use of the extracted tooth? I don't want a huge gaping hole in my lower jaw! Thanks.
Avatar n tn Six months late, I went back for check-up. Same tooth still hurt off and on - sometimes gum swelled underneath. My bite felt distorted from the swelling. Dentist told me to get a nightguard. Got nightguard - it seemed to help some nights, not others. The cap fell off last week. Dentist took another x-ray. Infection in tooth - tooth is dead and infection may have affected the jawbone. I was put on anti-biotics and saw a specialist for root canal.
615350 tn?1272598969 I heard the same thing when I had a root canal done on my back lower left tooth (not the wisdom tooth). The darn thing hurt for a year after and I finally had it pulled. The oral surgeon told me he should pull the one above, too, but I declined. That was 10 years ago and my upper tooth is just fine. I have very dense and hard bone and it held just fine. It's still fine and I have had no problem with it at all.
Avatar n tn I also would say that some insurance companies will pay for implantsbut many of them do cover the crowns on the implants as they would do on a natural tooth.You do have to be concerned about the teeth shifting if the tooth is extracted nd not replaced. If the root is fractured I do not see how you can not have it extracted.
2333944 tn?1342912367 That's fantastic Mary, thanks for sharing that success story!!!! Years ago my DDS pulled a wisdom tooth. He gave me Tylenol 3 and it didn't do anything for the pain, just a buzz for my brain. I called him back in misery, he gave me a script for Motrin 800s. They worked like a charm and no Opiates included. We're lucky there are meds we can still get by with that are safe for us. I'm always 1 vicodin away from my next disaster.
Avatar n tn , can you tell me about implants. Do they work better on the top than the bottom? Can they put implants in where decay was? Do they do implants at the same time they extract teeth or wait later to heal? Thanks for help.
Avatar n tn Hi, I think what is happening with your implants is what would happen if you had a healthy tooth there and not an implant anyway. Our gums have a tendency to recede. In all probability the reason you see the implant threads is because the gumline has receded back to your bone structure. Gum can't grow unless there is bone beneath it. I don't know your age or the reason you got implants, but many receive them due to periodontal disease with resulting bone loss.
460185 tn?1326077772 It does not however as the name implies mean that they should do surgery. An Oral Surgeon specializing in implants does implant work. By no means would you want this procedure done while just numb. It is a major and invasive surgery in your mouth. Trust me it really hurts if you are not fully sedated. They numb you too. The surgery is done in 2 parts weeks apart.
Avatar n tn When I was about 17 I started getting an adult tooth grow behind a baby tooth, at the time I didnt know my baby tooth never came in and I didnt have insurance so never took care of it.
Avatar f tn It seems to me that people who put implants in have no idea how to get them out and do not believe you when you say they hurt. I live near London and wondered if anyone knows of someone who would help me.
Avatar n tn t been taking good care of my teeth. My teeth have started to hurt for about 4 days and i have been taking extra care for them including using mouthwash after i drink soda. Last night I had trouble sleeping and stayed up all night. But since ive been up all night, my teeth hurt really bad and i get a painful feeling when i clench my teeth. What is it?
Avatar n tn i have a perforated 14th molar and I want to know if there is still a chance of saving the tooth or does it need to be extracted? The molar does not hurt but sometimes it feels a little sensitive (rarely).
Avatar m tn Also, do you think 1 cleaning with a metal instrument would have caused permenent damage?
Avatar m tn t sensitive to cold or hot things, just hurt when pressure is applied. I wanted to know if there was anything I could do before making my decision to go to the dentist. Also I looked in the back and front of the two teeth and nothing was there.
Avatar f tn But I am not so sure, I do not want particals or an implant, however I heard that implants were better than anything else but it's very time-consuming and if I had no choice but to have a partial bridge then I would only want it for my top front tooth and not sure if that can be done. But I would like to have a crown if that can be done so I was wondering if a crown can be done if the tooth is decayed, it isn't all that bad...
Avatar n tn My insurance also covers part of the cost of implants and the #7 tooth is already protruding and twisted -- would I be better off just having it extracted and then having an implant after the bone graft? Last question -- if I have the tooth extracted, is there any period of time that I would have to go without a temporary tooth/plate in that area?
Avatar m tn im like you, i dont want to have a bridge done at the expense of a healthy tooth. from what i understand is each time a tooth has work on makes the tooth more "angry"...thats why im not having a bridge done where i had the bootm one extracted...the teeth on either side of it are perfect, no denatl work on them at all and i dont even wanna start messing with them and make them im going for an implant.
Avatar f tn Hi there, Dental implants preserve bone since they function like tooth roots. The implants should be completely embedded in the bone. The bones must bond to the implants; this whole process takes place between 3 to 9 months on an average. The overall time required depends on number of factors involved like patient’s dental health, which teeth are to be replaced etc.Clarify your concerns with your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Best of luck and regards!
Avatar n tn My suggestion would be if 2 implants are too expensive then consider only replacing the #30 site to an implant. This is where you do 75% of your chewing anyway however the other consequence of not replacing the #31 tooth is you might still have your upper right second molar #2. If this is the case, if you don't replace the #31 then your natural #2 molar will "supraerupt" into the lower tooth position.
1345326 tn?1276449602 t believe a bridge can be supported by a natural tooth and an implant. Implants will not move in the bone at all. A natural tooth has some "give" in the bone. The stress on where the bridge would connect to the implant would be too much. It would be very prone to fracture there and also the micromillimeter movement could eventually doom the implant. If the span is not too long an implant on both end supported bridge might work great.
Avatar f tn Can I get a response from those of you that have had a Dental (tooth) implant done in the last few years. Did anyone have any problems with it, etc. I need a 3 unit crown and bridge but my dentist is pushing Implants. Having been in dentistry as an assistant several years ago. I'm not too up to date on them anymore. Thanks.
Avatar f tn IS IT SAFE TO REPEAT THE SURGERY AND PLACE THE IMPLANTS AGAIN? WILL IT WORK THIS TIME? If once implants were rejected ( for UNKNOWN reasons) may it happen again? What are the chences? Or maybe should I rather think about dental bridges?
