We know from years of seeing patients with dental implants that you might not know how to explain new sensations you’re experiencing with your implant. As a result, you might not really know what to do when they occur either. Should you just give it a bit of time? Should you call us? Fortunately, making up your mind and deciding how to proceed is easy and does not require a single moment of stress.
If You Just Got Your Restoration
If you just received your restoration, it is absolutely nothing to worry about if you don’t feel accustomed to wearing your restored dental implant just yet. Be patient and give your body time to adapt. If eating a meal and talking feel like foreign experiences, recognize that you will soon feel like everything is A-OK. (Note: If you experience pain, however, inform us right away).
If It’s Been A Little While
If it’s been several weeks and something still just doesn’t seem right, it’s a good idea to call us up, tell us about your sensations, and then make an appearance for a visit. We can ensure that all is well, balanced, and in harmony. Or, if anything requires adjusting or damage has occurred, we can repair it.
If It’s A Sudden Change
Maybe you’ve been wearing your dental implants for several years and suddenly, something feels new. It could feel like your tooth seems longer. You may feel like you cannot close your teeth together correctly. You may feel soreness. Whatever the case may be, this is a reason to call. A checkup of your smile will give us the insight we need to assist you in resolving the discomfort.
