Last week I had a crown placed over an implant in one of my bottom molars. When I eat, it feels different than my other teeth. It's hard to explain but it feels soft and I am aware of that tooth when I eat. This is my first implant. The crown's fit is good - it doesn't hit high, and it isn't loose.

Wondering if eventually I will get used to the implant?? I had that tooth extracted about 10 years ago so maybe I'm just not used to a tooth there.

I would have your general dentist check it out. Perhaps you have some gingival swelling.

Yes, go back and have the dentist check it out, with x-rays. There are several things that can go wrong, as listed on the release form you had to sign. I have had 4, and so far no problems of any kind, but you could have a situation where the bone graft was not totally healed in, the crown is not seated completely on the abutment, or the cement is not holding.

Thanks Blazer and Hemlock - I will make an appointment with the dentist. The tooth still doesn't feel right...sure hope the implant isn't failing.
