Here is a case study for you to evaluate. I welcome your responses. I will give my evaluation at the end of the month.
A dentist recently placed 6 size 15mm max MDI implants for a patient CUD retention with Standard IMTEC Housings (MH-1). The procedure went well, however, when the dentist saw the patient the following week the gum tissue was swollen and had covered a good portion of the implants. As well, there appeared to be a "circle of pus" around each implant head. However, when the dentist touched the area there was no exudate-it was the tissue itself that had become a pale whitish yellow. The patient claimed he had taken all his antibiotics but he was disappointed with the denture and said that he thought it would be tighter. All 6 implants were rock solid at his second visit.
1. What is the diagnosis?
2. What actions should be taken?
