Ever since I got my dental implant bridge, my teeth don’t line up correctly. When I am chewing, the teeth on the right side are off. Is this a normal adjustment period? – Meghan
Meghan – Your teeth should be aligned immediately after receiving your dental implant bridge. There is no adjustment period required for the alignment. Either your implants were not properly placed during the surgeon or the restoration was done incorrectly.
Implant dentistry requires careful planning and placement for the surgery. Although some dentists offer affordable dental implants, affordability alone should not be the patient’s only concern.
We recommend that you find a dentist with extensive post-graduate training in implantology. If the surgery and restoration are completed by two different dentists, the restoring dentist should provide a template of your mouth that indicates the exact angle and placement of your dental implants.
