Q.

Painful!!

I had implants inserted on my lower gum, ever since I get this shooting throbbing pain from the left side of my jaw to my left ear and it is so painfull, at times I can' t eat on the left side of my jaw due to pain and my jaw pops out.
I think the implants are on a nerve, would this be so and what can I do to get rid of the pain?
