    I am posting this here for Etta.

    Description: bottom denture
    Cost: thousands
    Dentist: AV Dental
    City: Ridgecrest

    I had denture implants put in my lower jaw almost 3 years ago. The left prong sits lower then the right one, and the muscle continuously tries to grow over the implant. I go in and he lasers the skin back. Very painful. He said I have the longest prong they have. You would think they could make a bit longer one. I am suffering every three months with this issue and it is very painful under that laser. Anyone else have this problem?

    Hi Etta,
    Sorry to hear about your problem. I think the best option would be to see another implant dentist to get a second opinion on your gum health, the fit of your denture and the implant fixtures. It shouldn’t be possible for gum tissue to grow over an implant post if everything is healthy and fitting as it should and another dentist might have a better and less painful solution than a laser.
