About 8 months ago I had the final placement of my dental implant, tooth 21. The implant 'tooth' is sensitive to touch and I constantly have a throbbing pain in the area. The Periodontist and my dentist say the implant looks perfect. X rays show nothing. My dentist and periodontist are wanting to extract 22 (root canal filled and with an apecetomy) as a solution. I'm very reluctant to do this as X-rays show nothing wrong with 22. Surely, someone must be able to help me and point me in the direction of eliminating my constant pain.
