Answer: Can I wear my retainer and my abutment

By Sarah h
Dental Professional

As long as the retainer is not impinging on the abutment, you are able to wear it as perviously instructed.  If there is swelling or the abutment tooth is causing the retainer not to seat fully, it may need to be adjusted.  Once your implants are restored you will need to have new retainers fabricated.
