Pain 6 weeks after implant surgery is
certainly concerning. Your surgeon should evaluate the site for signs o
inflammation or infection and determine the health of the surrounding

Without  more information, it's very difficult to give a really good answer to your question.It's not uncommon to have some degree of tenderness after dental implant placement especially if it was done immediately at the time of your surgery.The best advice would be to visit your dentist and have him take a look to make sure that the site is healing properly. 
I hope you found this information to be helpful,Dr. Champagne
