Implant crown loose and my gums hurt really bad around the crown. What could it be?

Just had my iMplant inserted today and now fells very loose, I can even move side to side with tongue. And my gums hurts really bad around the crown. What could it be?

Loose implant

Hi:

There is normally a temporary screw cap on top of the implant.  It is possible the screw cap is loose and needs to be tightened.  It is best to go back to your dentist ASAP to check he area.

Best,
