Dental Opinions, Failed dental Implant

Posted on Sunday, Jul. 18th 2010 9:50 AM by Dental Plan Reviews in Implants 2 Comments »

I have always had good teeth.  Even from the time I had baby teeth I never had a single cavity.  About five months ago I got into an accident where I hit the steering wheel of my car with my mouth.  This killed two of my front top teeth.

They turned gray in a month.  I went to a dentist and was told that the tooth nerve was dead.  They both were also loose.  Which I knew they were I was just hoping that they would go back to normal.  My dentist was just a general dentist.  He said that they should be pulled in his opinion and that I could get dental implants.

However if I did that I would need to see a specialist.   Well I thought it over and the two teeth were just become looser so I fell it was only a matter of time before them came out.   I found a dentist that could do the implants.  He pulled both teeth and did the implants the same day.

My problem is that my gums are not healing and I have been fighting infection on and off.  I will not even go into how much pain I am in.  I went back to the dentist and was told that I am having a bad reaction to the implants. He said this happens to some people.

That he can take out the implants and put in another type that may help.  Or he can just pull out the implant and I get a bridge.   I spent so much money already on this.  I want the implants because I know they look better then getting a bridge but the dentist told me there is still a chance that the new implants can have the same effect as the last ones.

Oh and by the way I having to pay for the new implants and or bridge.  So far I put out over $2000.00.  He is giving me a price brake of 30% for the other implants but that is all.   I am not sure what I should do.  Should I cut my losses and get a bridge or try the new implants?  Advise please.

    Well No one can really tell you what to do. I would suggest that you think about what you can afford to do. If you can afford to try out implants again and want to give it a chance then why not.

    My mom friend had the same thing happen to her. She had to have her implants re done too. I like to say every thing was fine afterwords but she still had trouble with one of them they are are still trying to fix.

    Implants are just not for everyone. And there is no money back guarantee so you are taking your changes with them. Give it some real though then do what you feel would be best for you.

    I do not think bridges are all that bad. At least you do not have to a worry about rejection. I would cut my losses and get a bridge. However that is only my opinion. Like the one reply stated if you think you can afford to redo the implants then you may want to give it a try.
