My tooth became infected. The assistant to my Docs said 95% of the time patients get an implant and nothing happens. Are we surprised that I fall into the 5% that does have issues?
I went in and got antibiotics and then a few days later the doc cleaned out the infected tissue from the inside of my implant. Ew. It hurt.
After I left, my temporary teeth which were one piece, were put back into place as two separate pieces. Yeah! I can now floss between my two front teeth again.
But. My good tooth feels a little wonky, like a little loose. I called Dr. Dad and he said it might be loose and it might settle and to go in in a few days to have it looked at. My good tooth? loose? A new test of patience and calming these teeth are.
But here is the most annoying part. The bad tooth has a cover tooth on it and the back of the tooth has a little hole that is filled in with cement to protect the implant. And there is cotton stuck to the silver cement, so it feels like I have little bits of cotton on my tongue all the time.
Like a hair you can’t remove.
And I have tried to figure out how to get the cottony hair off but I can’t, and so I have to wait until tomorrow.
And it’s like so annoying.
