    Question! I'm an active healthy 42/F and had a reabsorption issue on my front tooth, leading to an impromptu implant 2 months ago. The tissue on my upper palate is receding around the implant (pic attached). I also have been feeling a bit flu-like since last week, and experiencing continued achiness up in that area & my lymph nods around my throat have been off & on swollen since the procedure ... I was just rolling with it ... but i'm not getting better and just booked an apt. for a follow-up ... after spending $4614 on this procedure (no medical insurance). Not sure if I'm experiencing rejection, thus the symptoms ... what should I be asking? Attached the tooth + recession for reference. I could really use some insight.

    Did your dentist place a temporary bridge over the implant site? From the image, there may be some bony dehiscence/fenestration. I don't see a healing cap. It is unusual to quickly place an implant on a resorption site without having solid bone. Please provide an x-ray image. (I had 2 of my dentist colleagues look at your picture).

    Looks like a temp composite abutment over an implant. Go back to dentist then repost here with any further info. An xray would be helpful.
