Will The Puzzles Never Cease?
This 44-year-old woman came into my practice yesterday with a chief complaint of non-painful throbbing at the area of her implant. Also, she didn’t like the “feel of the shape” of the existing provisional.
She had the implant placed two years ago and last November started noticing the throbbing while exercising.
It never hurts but often occurs during exercise and now at times is spontaneous. The shape of the crown on the implant is the easy part, but what’s up with the throbbing?
What questions would you ask and what do you see on the films that I took?
