[QUOTE=Thelma-Louise;4217347]Yes - I so love it when dentists make a change to a tooth and then when it causes a problem want to change every other tooth around the one that they made or changed - yes, let's all ignore common sense which tells us the one tooth changed the bite and let's instead re-arrange the entire bite around this one tooth which is man made instead of correcting the crown itself.
It may be that the post or abutment attached to the implant was left too long so the crown is higher than it should have been so the dentist filed as much as he could without destroying the crown or allowing the post to poke through but its still not enough. The dentist should removed the crown - shave the post down a bit and then try a temp crown and not move to doing another perm crown until your bite feels normal again. He may need to do it a few times before you get the correct height. Of course this should have been done correctly the first time with him letting you wear a temp crown for several months to make sure all was Ok before commiting to a perm crown. I would try and get him to correct his mistake and not charge you for this - its not your fault - he did the work and he should be responsible for it.
He if won't do it then file a complaint against him and seek help from another dentist experienced with implants and crown placement and have him document what had to be done to the implant, new crown, etc as you should then seek reimbursement from the first dentist who originated the work and include these costs in your complaint as well.[/QUOTE
