I had a chin implant put in just over 9 years ago and I woke up in the middle of the night in sever pain on one side of my implant. It feels irritated and I feel a small amount of movement. I havent done anything out of the ordinary to cause this irritation which is why it is very confusing to me, and I have never had pain before with the implant other than when i had it put in. I do have a cavity that i am in need of getting filled but I dont know if that has anything to do with it. I have been applying ice to it but I am not sure what exactly is going on. I went to a urgent care and the doctor told me to go to the hospital which I think is overkill. The plastic surgen I had went to to recieve the implant is no longer open. It has been 9 years. So i am just not sure what to do. I am worried I am going to need it taken out. Any help would be appriciated, Cassie
Just posting an update on this post that I posted a couple of days ago. It turns out that the implant was affected by an infection that I had due to a infected tooth. Within a day and half of taking antibiotics that the dentist gave me, the swelling around my chin implant had completely gone away. And the dentist had said that even though it was a upper tooth and the implant is obviously on my lower jaw, the whole mouth and the surrounding area can be affected by a tooth infection. So I was just letting everyone know that if they did face a similar problem with their implant to check if they have any cavities. My cavity turned out to be a root canal but I'm just glad that I do not need to worry about needing a new chin implant LOL. Cassie
