Dental Implant Gum Irritation
August 2005 I had a dental implant (my second one) put in and I have had a gum irritation ever since they put the crown on.  It has been 3 years now and I have had 4 dentists (3 which are specialists) look at the implant, remove the crown, put it back on, mutiple xrays taken and no one has an answer as to why it stays irritated.  Could it be the compound of what the crown or post was made of that is causing this?

If the irritation of gum is present only after crown on, the source of irritation is probably from crown. Crown made of base metal may cause irritation. Other possibilities of irritation may be overcontour of crown, or occlusion.
