Bacteremia: Make an appointment with your dds immediately to be seen tomorrow morning .

Removing the implant, even if it was placed in a bad location will cause bone loss. It only should be done if you attempt to replace it with another implant in the right location. Gum will heal after implant removed but why? ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
