I had 2 the teeth out about 7 years ago. They left me with chronic pain that is constant . I stopped doing anything more after visiting ever kind of dr I could think of.there were no answers just different names. Including and easiest to understand phantom pain.
I have one more tooth I would like to take out on the same line, the surgeon would put in an implant right away to avoid bone loss but can't promise the tooth won't hurt. After this long I can't go on without trying. I know he is an excellent periodontist and at this point I want to have teeth again and see if this last one will take the pain away.
My question is has anyone had success with implants after being on opioid pain meds for many years, or does this make my jaw and bone more susceptible to break?
Thanks for any help.
