I'm sorry to hear you're going through such a tough time!! Like my colleagues said, we all want you to have a great dental experience, so maybe a team approach would be best. Were the dental implants placed by a specialist or your regular dentist? You may want to have a consultation and evaluation with a Periodontist to discuss your story. There may be complications issues that were not clearly explained to you, so having the fresh perspective of the gum specialist may help.

Write down a list of all of your questions and be sure to bring them to your evaluation appointment to ensure that you fully understand what your situation and options are. The specialist's office can even call to obtain records.

I hope that you are able to resolve your issue because dental implants are usually a great restorative option. Good Luck!!
