I had a lower front implant placed three months ago and my oral surgeon sent me to my dentist to get the crown done. I went yesterday, and my dentist unscrewed the healing cap, put in what felt like a long rod attachment, took an impression, and then put the healing cap back on. A few hours later my gums were sore, inflamed and painful. This morning the pain is not as bad, but the soreness is still there. I left a message for the dentist to call me back but I am not sure if this is normal? Could it be the dentist tightened the healing cap too tight and is now bothering my gums?
