Pain in Implant from 8 Years ago: thoughts?
I am a female patient in my 70’s in good health. I received an implant (lower left towards back) in the beginning of 2010. Recently, I have started to get a very uncomfortable feeling (sometimes painful, depending on the touch) on the tooth area with the implant. I also cannot chew in that area. I’ve attached a recent x-ray below that I got from my current dentist (another dentist placed the implant, but they have been unresponsive to my calls). I am concerned I have some sort of infection in the implant. What can be done to figure out what is going on? Is it possible this implant is failing now? Would appreciate any feedback. By the way, I live in New York City.
