hello, Im in desperate need of advice. ive had my dental implant in for a year now and I have this aweful fecal taste/smell around the gum where the dental implant is placed. I first noticed it when the post/abuntment was place. It's not a constant smell/taste; it only comes out when I sorta suck it out. I've brought this up with the dentist who did the implant and he just tells me that it's from food stuck up there, which I think is kind of a bull**** answer. I have since moved to another city and haven't seen that dentist in awhile. Unfortunately the fecal smell is back, like I said it isn't there all the time, only when I extract the smells or when I rub my finger along the gum or smell the floss after I floss that area. It LITERALLY drives me insane and I get so upset bc I spend $3,000 out of my own pocket on this, and I take really good care of that area. I'm not sure if the if food caught way way up there, or if there is a pocket up there that has bacteria in there. I have no clue why this is happening. Has anyone else experienced this or know anyone that has? I'm so desperate and thinking about removing the whole thing, but I hate to lose the money I spent, because it took me forever to pay for it. Please please please help me!!!,
