The area may bleed for some time after the procedure. In addition, an infection may develop after the surgery. These complications may occur after any type of surgery. Some people find that after the surgery, their teeth are sensitive to hot and cold. This is because the roots of the teeth are now exposed. The sensitivity goes away with time, or when a crown is put on the tooth.Because of the tissue and bone removal, the affected tooth may look longer than the teeth next to it. Removing bone from around a tooth can loosen it. If that tooth is ever lost, it could be more difficult to put in a dental implant to replace it. Your dentist will talk about these possibilities with you.
