Nerve Pain after dental implant
to Rule out damage to the nerve in the region of dental implant, you could see your surgeon and have a CT scan of the site. If nerve damage is present , then the implant will need to be removed as soon as possible and appropriate treatments are needed to help Nerve recovery
The pain in the base of the skull/ TMJ could be due to opening wide during the surgery or hyperextension of your neck for a while during the surgery. Which will resolve on it's own. You could take some Anti inflammatory meds/ muscle relaxants to help ease the pain
See your surgeon to rule out Nerve damage Asap. This is a time sensitive matter.
