Why Do I Suddenly Notice a Foul Odor Near my Implant Gumline?
I've had my implant and crown for approx 3 years. Just recently when I "rubbertip" the area (which I do daily), the typicaly bit of oozing that occurs has a very foul odor. I saw my dentist who had no concerns but she followed up with my periodontist, who also said he wasn't concerned. I pushed the issue and got an appt to see my periodontist but not for another 2 weeks. Should I be concerned and request a sooner visit? Thoughts on the cause of this odor all of a sudden?
