Patient presented in July 2016 with long standing pain and infection in the area of tooth #5. I extracted the tooth in September 2016 and placed an implant that day. I started to restore the implant yesterday and I discovered a fistula. I traced it with a gutta percha point (see pa). I probed the fistula, but could not sound to the implant. I placed the patient on clindamycin 1,200 mg/day and seated the final restoration and hand tightened the screw only. Patient called today in pain and says the tooth in front of the implant is numb. Any ideas on what’s going on? Any suggestions?
