Replacing a missing tooth with dental implants is not a new thing. Even though the porcelain crowns implanted with a titanium post into the jawbone cannot be infected, the tissues surrounding the implants are prone to infection.
If any infection in the gum tissues around the implants are not treated properly, the contamination will advance and cause Peri-Implantitis.
Do you experience severe pain in your gums when you eat and drink?
Such painful gums are a warning signal of various dental complications like canker sores, gingivitis and other periodontal diseases. Otherwise, it occurs due to bacterial build-up, brushing or flossing too hard, wearing dental appliances like dentures & braces.
