Im in the process of getting dental implants for my 2 upper front teeth. I just had my first implant crown placed in. So now I have one tooth and one missing tooth next to it. The implant crown keeps rubbing against my upper inner lip. Went back to the dentist and he told me its because im missing the tooth next to it. He said that when i get the other crown placed next to it, i should be fine and that I will not feel any rubbing on the upper inner lip. Is this true? I have no pain but its extremely annoying. Thanks!
that would make sense to me. I had implants done and now have a temporary set of top and bottom acrylic teeth while the bone is healing and the implants are setting in. I got the implants done and had an immediate set of temporary teeth put on right after surgery. That was the end of September 2018- since then I have had 4 breaks and a front tooth fall right off the acrylic while I was cleaning them with a water pic. Anyway- my point is after the tooth in front fell off it was a little uncomfortable rubbing on the lip. However, the break that I had in the back on the bottom set of teeth-was a sharp break that broke the tooth with some of the acrylic “gum” off. That was cutting my cheek and tongue and I had to suffer until clinic opened or could get me in to fix it. It can be very painful and annoying.
