You may have a mild earache for several days or your throat may hurt. As the anesthetic begins to disappear after the implant procedure, the patient may experience pain and discomfort. Although, a patient may claim this pain as ear pain, most likely the pain refers to pain. Depending on the site of the procedure, it is common for patients to experience “ear pain” from the molars found in the back of the mouth.
The pain and tenderness of the implant site can easily make it feel like ear pain when altogether it is really pain that comes from the mouth. Ear pain may be due to dental problems. Andrew Mortensen understands the connection between earache and oral health. Below, we look at the dental problems that can cause ear pain.
We also offer a range of restorative dentistry services at our Fountain Valley, CA practice. Sometimes an ear infection can cause tooth pain. In other cases, dental problems can cause earaches. In determining the cause of your pain, Dr.
Mortensen will examine your mouth and discuss your symptoms and medical history with you. One symptom of TMJ disorder is ear pain. In addressing the underlying causes of TMJ disorder, Dr. Mortensen can relieve discomfort in the jaw and any symptoms of ear pain.
While a ringing in the ear is not physically painful, it can be psychologically exhausting. There have been reports that tinnitus can be caused by retained wisdom teeth, TMJ disorder and abscesses. The most likely problem is an infection at the dental implant site. This is very rare, but it can cause inflammation and pain around the dental implant.
Often, it is possible to clean and disinfect the implant site and use antibiotics to eliminate the infection and save the dental implant. Sometimes, a dental surgeon may place a dental implant too close to a nerve without realizing it. This can cause long-term numbness, tingling, or pain. Unless there is a serious problem with your implants, I would not recommend removing them to replace them with a partial one.
If you have recently had a dental implant placed, you may be wondering when you can expect the pain and discomfort to subside after surgery. I was given a dental implant about 35 years ago due to an accident that I had several years before and that completely broke my tooth in half. Medicare does not cover the costs of routine dental care, although it will cover dental treatment if it is part of emergency care. Without knowing the bone volume, the density at the surgical site and the safety of the implant at the time of surgery, and where the implant “is”, it is difficult to comment on what has happened.
In some cases, it is because the implants are not in the correct location or angle or the aesthetics of the situation will not allow the implant to be useful. DIS can also cause some less common problems, such as sinus problems and damage to the dental implant itself. I have been trying to heal for more than a year, I don't want to continue loosening or extracting teeth, I just want to regain my dental health. Almost a year later, I haven't had a crown placed, but the second implant they gave me seems more exposed and I noticed that there is some micromobility of the implant (back and forth).
In the first few weeks after DIS, the dental implant will grow and fuse with the jaw. Conditions such as cancer, radiation to the jaws, alcoholism, uncontrolled gum disease or diabetes, smoking, certain medications, and several other ailments can affect the body's ability to heal and whether dental implants will fuse with bone. The amount of space is usually “narrow”, making it difficult to place individual implants and teeth. Teeth will be compressed ~30 microns when squeezed, while an implant will compress only 3-5 microns depending on bone density.
