Dr. Shephard asks:
My patient was missing #7-10. I had my oral surgeon place 2 dental implants
positions of the upper lateral incisors.
I asked him to check the
to make sure they were fully integrated so I could go ahead and make
bridge. He dismissed the patient after he did the uncovery of the
dental implants, saying everything was fine. However, when I went to make the impression,
tightening down the impression coping screw caused some pain. I
also noticed the
dental implant was slightly loose. What should I do next?
