I had a dental implant and a crown on top of it on the upper jaw, one of the back teeth. The area around the implant feels a little bit numb, under my eye there is a senstation, and just below the eyebrow hurts. Periodic headache on above the ear area occurs, usually night time. I keep taking pain-killers. I have been in pain for over one month.
Is this normal after dental impant?
I think it is connected with the implant, my pain around eye and above ear area. The dentist claim it is not but I know it is. It seems that when I take pain-killers it numbs a little bit. I brushed the inner part of the crown with a nail file and the pressure has eased in last two days, but I still have a discomfort. I am going to remove the crown from the implant as I want to get some rest from pain.
Thanks again to you guys with these very useful to know remarks and I am sorry to hear, painful experiences, as I am in one now.
I hope this all helps us to understand the possible complications with dental implants.
