I’ve had a tooth removed and planned on getting a dental implant put in its place. I have a temporary flipper for now, but I’m having pain with the flipper. My dentist has checked it and said I’m coming along fine. When I’m not wearing it I am fine. Do you think I would be foolish to go ahead with the dental implant if I am having pain from just the flipper?

You are probably just having soft tissue problems with the flipper. It is not uncommon for their to be some un-comfortableness when these are first placed. This should not have a negative impact on your dental implants. There are some people whose bodies reject the implants, but these are few and soft tissue problems are not an indicator of leading to this.
I hope this helps.
