Our Newly Ill Face Their First Holiday Season with ME/CFS
Don't look now! The holiday season is on its way. I've lived through decades of them with ME/CFS. So have many of you in our chronically ill community. That's beyond sad for all of us. But at least we have some idea what we're contending with, and have learned our ways of handling...

dental implants/bone graft OK for PWCs?

    Does anyone have experience with dental implants (I think they are mostly titanium), and bone grafts (they can be cadaver or bovine? But they have other ingredients in them? Like growth factors, abx's?)?
    I can't find any info on the Net that addresses this.
    I am seriously considering the above, but the bone grafts has to be put in this wk, if at all. (bridges are not an option for me)
    Any info on ingredients and/or brands that are OK - or not OK - would be appreciated (as would info on any reactions)
    Thanks - Les

    Hi Imaz

    I'm sorry at this point I have no idea. I am going to dental hospital 24th of this month to see if they can save my teeth. My teeth are fine, but my gums are shot. If I learn anything I will let you know.

    As it is dental implant success is related to periodontists skill, and the patient's oral hygiene.

    While implants might technically work, the long term result of having them is chronic infection in the bone around the implants, frequently actually killing the bone. If the bone has been killed, there is no reaction to the infection. The problem with implants is there is nothing stopping bacteria travelling from the mouth down the side of the implant and deep into the bone, since they aren't sealed. Natural teeth are attached totally differently. In fact infection and bone loss around implants is so common, dentists in their infinite wisdom even invented a new term for this infection, peri implantitis.

    just wow .. all i will say is if you have an implant is, good luck with jawbone necrosis.
