Just got a crown on a dental implant. It is a lower molar. Maybe it is because the base of the crown needs to fit onto the dental implant which doesn't have as large as a diameter as a molar's root would, but there is a big gap between the crown and the tooth next to it on each side around the base of the crown, though the width of the top of the crown is like a normal molar, so the gap doesn't extend all the way up to the top. In fact it is hard to get floss in at the top because it is so tight. These gaps get packed with food, and if it is something like fiberous vegetables or nuts, I usually can't get it out without flossing which is not great for eating outside of my home. If you have a crown on a dental implant is it shaped like mine and are you having these issues with food?
