Help.. i have implants in my upper front teeth, except the eye/canine teeth (which are posts + caps) from middle 07. no problems.. in dec 08 i started having a constant dull ache on my upper rite side..it was not localized. xrays of the area all looked ok. thinking the pain mite be in a rear molar, my dentist looking for a crack removed the cap from the 2nd to last tooth. all looked good.. still in pain, we removed the cap from next tooth .all looked ok. in feb 09, the pain seemed to localize at the front of the eye tooth (next to one of the implants). next i had oral surg from the molar to the front of the eye tooth, looking for a crack. none was found. still in pain thinking maybe sinuses, had a catscan- all ok. in march i went to a root canal doc, who removed the post+cap looking inside for a crack. none was found. still in pain, i went to a neurologist, had an mri, all ok. finally in april, i had the eye tooth pulled and bone put in for an eventual implant.. i still had the same pain. finally in may 09 i was sent to a facial pain dentist, who advised no more dental work, too much was already done, and gave me a trigger point injection.. on the 20min ride home the pain started to go away.. after 6months.. no pain.. had one add. treatment and all was ok...till feb of this year , 9months later... the pain returned about 10days before i was sch to have the implant put in. i had the implant put in, and still in contant pain. i went for 5 acupunture treatments... no help... i went back to the orig doc for trigger point injections, and had 3 so far... but no relief.. he has put me on nortriptyline, and this week clonazepam , but this seems tobe useless
at this mom i am not wearing my flipper, so have a space .. and this is where the discomfort is, the gum nearto the front implant is tender. every dentist/doc i go to says the gum tissue looks 'great' ... yet the gum tissue is tender...
i have asked numerous times if maybe it is the front implant- everyone says they are fine... HELP
