This case involved a 47 year old healthy male, fractured virgin #4 was atraumatically removed. A Biohorizons tapered implant was placed along with BG and a membrane with primary closure, on the same day. Patient reported no issues for first 4 days after placement but on 5th day, severe pain. The implant was removed on day 6, socket curretted and bg placed. Wondering what would cause the pain? I am thinking possible bone compression upon placement? Any thoughts are appreciated. Sorry about the xrays.
