See an oral surgeon
It IS possible to unscrew dental implants
It is best to see an experienced oral surgeon and possibly a neurosurgeon to try to save the nerve. After 5 months it is possible that the nerve is beyond repair.

You may be able to unscrew the implants or they may need to be removed with a trephine.
PROCEED WITH GREAT CAUTION TO NOT MAKE MATTERS WORSE.
