Pain Near Implants: What Do I Do?

If you experience pain at the site of your dental implant or near it, you may go from calm to a bit horrified within 60 seconds! You may also find yourself frantically attempting to sort out the details of why you’re experiencing discomfort, if it means something “bad,” and what you can do to make it go away. We strongly suggest, of course, that you take a moment to relax. Realize that it might be nothing (but if it is, we can help). Then, pick up the phone and dial our number! Of course, a few more suggestions can’t hurt.

Don’t Do More Than Brush And Floss

We know that once you brush and floss and you realize that your dental implant site is still uncomfortable, you may do what a lot of patients will feel tempted to do: You’ll try to figure out what’s happening and you will try to fix it. This is natural, of course! There’s a problem, you’re an intelligent person, and you are looking for a solution. Unfortunately, if it isn’t brushing and it isn’t flossing, anything else you attempt will run the risk of causing harm. Don’t try it.
