Common Questions and Answers about Do tooth implants hurt


1058622 tn?1254349787 (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 Truth is I haven'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?
615350 tn?1272602569 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 My two front teeth were affected from a fall on concrete 6-20-07. It felt as though the left tooth had a severed nerve, because it was loose, but it didn't hurt, like the nerve was cut or something. the dentist temp filled the right, which was a small chip, and bonded the left front tooth to the tooth next door to give it a chance to "tighten up".
Avatar n tn The worst part is the fact I did not realize I was feeding a sweet tooth for many years. You may find that dentists do not spend any time counseling their patients relative to the things that cause tooth and root decay, or how to get free from it. Why should they when they make money from dental disease. Dental decay is the number one disease in the world. The primary cause is diet, and no amount of dental work can stop the decay process.
Avatar f tn I just want piece of mind that this is a good idea as I am scared to death about these procedures. Since my last visit, my tooth doesn't hurt, I am wondering if putting off this procedure will have any negative impacts ie make it worse in the long run. If I do need the dental implant, I don't really understand the healing time and even how long it will take to get the tooth extracted then wait and heal and get the dental implant.
Avatar m tn If you are hitting on your temporary crown first before your other teeth, then that could cause your tooth to hurt and feel more bruised. It does take a little while for your tooth to recover from a root canal---depending how bad the infection was, etc. It may just take some time for all to heal.
Avatar n tn About 18 months ago I had 3 implants on the top right side. About 9 months later my 30 yr. old caps were removed on the uppers and replaced with new ones. When the bridge was cemented on the implants my gums immediately started burning. A week later I returned to the dentist so he could examine the area around the implants (made of porcelain). He said everything looked ok, but the gums continue to burn. Then about 5 months ago I had to have a new cap on the lower right molar.
Avatar f tn There are also a ton of places to get dentures that do not make good ones. Implants today can now make up for a lot of problems with dentures (increase force to 100lbs, stabilize the lower), but they still aren't as good as natural teeth. If you decide to keep your teeth, try to find a dentist that will give you a comprehensive plan with options (there are always multiple ways to do things in dentistry).
Avatar n tn He sent me to an Endodontist who did the root canal through the new crown. The discomfort and mild tooth pain persisted after that. The pain seems to be coming from the tooth that received the root canal. It is also sensitive to cold but not heat. I called him back and he said it might be an infection and gave me 10 days of Amoxicillan. Nothing changed. I called back after the antibiotics and he said I might need a stronger antibiotic.
Avatar n tn dentist said need to remove #12,13,14 do bone graft and then implants. teeth are fine 70% of time, but sometime hurt. is there any alternative to implants inorder to keep teeth.
703897 tn?1248023574 To date my gums and tissue are still sensitive and I still cannot eat on the tooth. The endodontic treatment from February 4th, 2009 is still healing quite slowly due to the trauma from the hyper occlusion of the crowns. I have more information on my space ------ since you cannot send personal emails on this website. Here is a piece I got from on line ADA site. website is and http://jada.ada.
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.
Avatar f tn Hello, The common causes of tooth extraction are too badly damaged, from trauma or decay. If there is tooth decay or damage which extends to the pulp it might be essential to get it removed. Do not think about the number of extractions. If you need extraction get it removed as decaying tooth can cause further complications if not removed on time. Go for the treatment and follow your dentist’s advice. Stop worrying about others’ remarks.
1754670 tn?1312381895 Hi, Do you mean implants? Implants are a permanent solution to replace lost teeth. They are titanium screws that are placed where the tooth has been removed and then allowed to heal (osseo integration). The healing process can take a few months so normally a dental prostheses (denture) is used while they do. After they have fully integrated into the bone, an abutment (post type piece) is placed into the implant and a crown goes over this. There are three pieces to most implants.
Avatar n tn Ok he start the rooth canal and after he put the crown this tooth start to hurt really bad.He put inside of the tooth a post too.It pass already more than o1 month, its ashelly almost 02 months and i still have pain.I told him that the tooth hurts me and he sad, that it wasnt the tooth that wasnt hurting me, but the wisdom tooth by the side.So i decide to go to another dentist , where i use to go before, i couldnt treat this tooth with him becouse he doesnt have any kind of payment plan.
Avatar n tn It doesn't hurt to eat mildly crunchy things, but it does hurt to eat something thick and chewy like Italian bread. It used to hurt to push on it with a finger, but it doesn't hurt to do that anymore. It sometimes hurts to push it from the side. It mostly just feels sore--not really a sharp pain like when my bottom tooth was cracked. Do you have any ideas for what this could be and what type of dentist I should visit?
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 n tn a endodontist says he wants to do exporitave surgury and look to see if he can save the tooth for $1500. and then i would still need a cap. the problem is if i extract the tooth im missing the one in front that poses a chewing problem, im not sure about implants but i thought they are painful and costly. and would be missing 2 teeth ina row im 47 years old male. a bridge might be anothe way i guess?
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.
2333944 tn?1342915967 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.
1415174 tn?1453246703 I used a metal removable partial while my four implants integrated as they were the top front four. Good luck! And, do let us know how you make out. We LOVE success stories!
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.
Avatar n tn A second opinion cannot hurt in your case-- being advised to extract a tooth becasue a canal couldn't be found sounds fishy to me.....But inquire as to whether the endodntist uses a microscope-- it's been my experience that the beter endodontists have one.
86664 tn?1291561395 i too, also had great teeth before tx, now i am having all sorts of trouble. like they say if the disease does not kill you the cure will!
Avatar m tn They aren'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 I so feel for you, tooth pain is horrible. Do you have an absess tooth? Can you get any antibiotics ? I was a dental asst. for 10 yrs. Most likely infection is causing the pain. Write me back , let me know what is happening with your teeth.
Avatar n tn He only filled it, i think, and started talking about possible expensive root canals that is very expensive...Do you think I am being taken for a ride here? I know that the tooth extraction only cost $94.00....He said the root canal will cost $1,000.00....Also this is a small town, and the businesses help each other out through referrals....but what about the patients...I don't know if I am being taken advantage of for money, or really being helped...
405614 tn?1329147714 Last week, I had a tooth get really sensitive to cold and pressure, on the opposite side from my TN. I called my dentist's office, asked if they could check my X-rays and see if there was a noticeable issue (hoping that it would be something simple). I was told I needed to be seen, and made an appointment for today. Over the weekend, I noticed pain on the other side, and discovered an abscess.
Avatar n tn I would be a little more conservative and say the success rate is more in line of about 80-85% of it taking and that if it does take, the longevity of it lasting 20+ yrs is 90-95% of those implants that do take. While the procedure is short relatively, it does take awhile for the bone to heal around it so you have to be patient during the process of healing but once it succeeds, it should last quite a long time.
