I thought I'd wait until the whole procedure was finished to report back. The procedure wasn't bad, alittle soreness the next day but not a big deal really. My gums are still sore though and I went back for the follow-up today. The gums seem to be only sore around crowns that were put on within the last six monthes. I mentioned this to the periodontist who now is considering doing a "crown lengthening procedure" due to "violation of biologic width." I went back to the general dentist and told him the periodontist's suggestion, and he said that it wasn't a good idea because it might change the crown margins and therefore I might end up worse than I am now It now is hurting every time I chew on these teeth with the permanent crowns, but the dentist says it's the gums around them and to just keep flossing and using Listerine. I don't know if I should have the crown lengthening procedure done or not ??? I don't want to damage the crown margins, but they are hurting. Any imput would be greatly appreciated. I'm about ready to pull these things if I don't get some kind of help for them soon.
