Does getting a tooth implant hurt

Common Questions and Answers about Does getting a tooth implant hurt


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 s 10 bucks a month and will usually provide you a 40-50% savings when purchasing/getting an implant. Just remember that the implant does not replace the tooth portion, it is only an "artificial root" and you will have to have a "abutment" and "tooth" made to complete the treatment.
Avatar m tn Oops. Sorry. I missed the part about the bone loss. Have you seen an oral surgeon that does implants? Bone can be added, allowed to heal and then an implant placed. Only problem with a removable partial for back teeth is that it is difficult to chew, not impossible, but difficult because they are not held that firmly in the mouth. Only by small clips to other teeth. It's also one of the reasons that a three unit bridge may fail sooner rather than one in the front.
Avatar m tn I'm 63 and have been without 2 molars for more years than I can remember and have had no issues. You DO get used to it and it doesn't interfere with eating or anything else. Except for the two molars, I still have all my teeth and they are very healthy except for one. It has a filling and is cracked but my dentist says "why do anything until it causes you a problem?" That was about 7 years ago and it still has not given me any problems.
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 is there a periodontal problem? meaning are there pockets around this tooth? mobility? does it hurt to bite or when you release your bite?
Avatar n tn My first choice if you have to lose the tooth is the placement of an implant.The implant can be a life time restoration.Who places the implant and who restores it is very important.
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 Because the tooth is hurting does not necessarily mean that it is fractured. It could be that the infection from the dead nerve has not healed. I would not rush to extract the tooth unless you get a consult with an Endodontist(RC specialist). It is possible that the rct has to be retreated. There are opther ways to replace that tooth other than a bridge--implant is a possibility--so you do not have to touch the other teeth. I would first explore the first scenario.
Avatar m tn I have had several surgeries to have a tooth implant put in. last week i got a sinus infection and was put on antibiotics (a Z pack that i finished 2 or 3 days ago). i started to feel better 2 days ago. however, yesterday i started getting pain in the general area of my implanted tooth. the tooth is located on the upper left side of my mouth (5 in from my front tooth). I thought it was strange that it started bothering me AFTER most of my congestion went away.
Avatar m tn You can gently bite down on a cotton gauze pad placed over the wound to help stop the bleeding. The removed tooth can be replaced with an implant, a denture, or a bridge. A bridge is a replacement for one or more (but not all) of the teeth and may be permanent or removable.
Avatar n tn It was sensitive so received a root canal. A month later, I found a boil of pus on my gums above that tooth. It does not hurt, is very small, and comes and goes. My dentist thinks I need to remove that tooth and have a dental implant because there is going to an infection to my jawbones. Since there is no pain and the tooth seems pretty solid (for now), is this really necessary at the moment? I was told not to wait longer than two months before removing it. I don't want to regret it.
Avatar n tn If the dentist feels that the tooth is hopeless then I would think it has to be extracted now to avoid the possibility of an infection. As far as the replacement, if the lower first molar makes contact with the upper second molar there is a good chance that the upper molar will not extrude into the position of the lost lower molar. In those instances the tooth need not be replaced.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I have a question about a fractured front tooth. I am 25 years old and I have had this injury to my top front tooth for about 4 years now, as far as I know it is fractured all the way from the middle of the tooth up to the root. My dentist told me after it happened that it would likely need a root canal done one day, but said it could be a year or ten years, no way of knowing.
1415174 tn?1453243103 I had a tooth extracted and I am thinking of getting a dental implant. I am concerned with several things regarding the implant: 1. how long are you under anesthetic? 2. how much pain after they put the implant in? 3. do they put in a plate or something so you can chew on that side? 4. I understand it takes 4 months to heal before the implant and then 4-5 months after before they can put the crown or top part on.
Avatar m tn If root resorption tooth is asymptomatic , you don,t need to worry. No one can tell when the tooth will come out. Implant is a highly predictable and viable option for replacing missing tooth.once it is inserted and restored , it can service decades, no need to remove healthy implant.
Avatar m tn hello, i had an implant done 3 days ago after removal of my front upper tooth UR2, by the 'immediate loading' method. Everything seems to be fine, no pain, no bleeding etc, except for the strange feeling in my implanted tooth and the adjacent tooth UR1. The area feels a bit 'tight' ( i would describe this sensation to be similar to when i floss my teeth and the dental floss stucks between two of them causing a funny feeling of tightness).
Avatar m tn If #15 is fine and the root canal is stable, I would suggest to put a crown on that individual tooth. As for #13, I would always favor not treating a tooth that's not needed. Plus, the life span of a bridge isn't that great so there's always the possibility that the bridge will fail and may jeopardize either #13, 15 or possibly both. I would suggest to try to deal with #14 individually with either an implant or a root canal.
Avatar n tn So the first part was to remove the tooth and add a bone graft to replace bone that came out when the tooth was removed. That hurt, and hurt and hurt for almost a month. It was swollen, painful to touch, my face and area under the jaw bone was visibly swollen, headache and earache. I was on more pain killers than ever in my life (I have had babies, back pain and prior surgeries).
Avatar f tn I keep getting this white bump on my upper gums in the same spot every time, just above my left front tooth. Sometimes it hurts and is uncomfortable so I will pop it like a pimple and a white fluid comes out but it relieves the pressure and pain, then i rinse with listerine. I think it may have something to do with a past injury to my teeth.
Avatar m tn You may consult with a restorative dentist first.If the tooth is indicated for extraction, you can have immediate implant or delayed implant, depending on the clinician's preference and experience.consultation with an implantologist is advised.
Avatar m tn I have a tooth crown towards the front (next to one insissor) that may need replacement soon. Been this way for 7+ years and it came off a year ago since the tooth inside started going bad. My present dentist glued it back on and its held for a year so far. Dentist tells me that she may not be able to reglue it back on if it breaks off again. I however want the matter addressed asap b/c stuff is going inside this crown and causing decay.
Avatar n tn I am curious as to why the root canal needed to be done all of a sudden after the implant surgery. Was there a pre-existing problem with that tooth? I would also be concerned about a communication between your sinus cavity and your mouth. If you have not lost confidence in the "surgeon" who did the implant placement surgery, I would return to them to discuss your situation. I am assuming you were treated by an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon.
Avatar n tn The very last tooth had and old filling, the middle tooth an ugly crown and the tooth in front of it a large crack and decay under existing filling. My DDS opted for an inlay, onlay and new crown. From the time the numbing medicine wore off the cracked tooth hurt. I returned to my DDS 3 or 4 times complaining of a toothache, jaw pain and earache. He felt the tooth was "too high" and adjusted it to no avail. Today I had a root canal on the tooth....and guess what?
Avatar n tn hi, i had a tooth implant done about a week ago and having some throbbing in that area is this normal?
Avatar n tn My question is can a reaction to dental work cause systemic disease? Less than a year ago I had a dental implant along with bone grafting. It was supposedly my own bone from the other side of my mouth done at the same time as the dental implant. Not 3 days after the dental implant I experienced a feeling that something was not right. The area hurt, I felt spacey and really felt like something was wrong. Like my body had something in it, it didn't like.
