Had two implants on bottom jaw to hold denture in place after 3 months post were to be put in. Upon screwing in post extreme pain was felt. Was told implant did not take… Denist did some additional work to implant leaving them in place. Im to go back in 3 more months to have post put in. Does this sound right?August 8, 2015 at 8:57 pm #1562m28silverParticipant
WAS THIS DR AN IMPLANTOLOGIS WHO HAS DONE AT LEAST 2 OR 3 IMPLANTS PER WEEK OR IS HE ADDS WHO IS DOING A FAVOR? CHECK OUT ONLINE WHAT KIND OF IMPLANT AND PROCEDURE HE DID , SEARCH FOR INFO. BE AN INFORMED BUYER. YOU HAVE OPTIONS. GOOD LUCK.August 28, 2015 at 7:59 am #1632Aussie16Participant
I had 10 implants fitted in my top jaw i also felt extreme pain when he was tightening some i had to stop him as it was really hurting. In the end he continued to fit them and so far the top set have been ok but i had 10 posts not 2 . I do believe giving them more time to take may be helpful but only time will tell.
I am considering having a post added to the bottom but out of 6 posts 4 have broken and my whole lower bridge has come off, unfortunately i had these done In India so i am totally screwed. Good luck with yours.September 11, 2015 at 12:17 pm #1684dubaidentalimplantclinic29Participant
You must always check the experience of the dentist. If he/she is well experienced in the field of dental implants and says that it is normal, then he/she maybe right. But trusting blindly isn’t a good thing? You must ask him questions about what exactly went wrong. Don’t worry about not understanding terms, you could always take the help of the internet. But don’t forget to ask questions!September 15, 2015 at 5:10 pm #1686AskAliParticipant
Dental implants do need several months to integrate with the bone so perhaps your implant dentist was trying to ‘load’ them too soon after surgery but it would be nice if they gave you more explanation. I think I’d ask them why there was pain, what additional work has been done to the implants and how this will help.
I’d also agree with making sure your implant dentist has lots of experience as it really does matter, particularly for multiple implants or if anything goes wrong. Don’t just pick someone who only places an occasional implant. Don’t be afraid to ask questions until you completely understand and it’s down to your dentist to make sure they explain things properly. Just to add, you do need more dental implants in your upper jaw than in your lower jaw to retain an entire arch of teeth.

Yes, it can happen. But I would suggest that you ask your dentists about what went wrong with your previous implant and how this new post would help, before you proceed any further!
