Reply To: Pain When I Bite Down?


I’m so sorry to hear your implant is painful.
I’d ask your implant dentist to re-examine the implant and old scans and to take fresh scans if necessary, just in case the implant is too close to a nerve. It is also possible that the temporary cap was placed too soon, before the bone had a chance to fully heal and is rather sensitive whenever you bite down. Check that the temporary cap is not too large or too high as this will interfere with your bite, increasing the pressure on the dental implant whenever you try to chew.
