Do soft drinks, such as Diet Pepsi, stain dental implants?

If you mean the crowns that cover the implants - no. Those are baked porcelain (or metal, or porcelain-coated metal). If you mean the implants themselves, highly doubtful, and it wouldn't matter anyway since no one sees them. They're covered by crowns.

Thanks for setting me straight on the terminology! I may just have to get some...

Dental implants are an excellent long-term option for restoring back your lovely smile. Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. Here's the process: 1. The dentist places the implant into the jawbone. You might want to eat soft foods, cold foods and warm soup. 2. The bones around the implant heals and the process is called osseointegration. Osseointegration means "combine with the bone". It usually takes time. 3. The placement of the artificial tooth/teeth. Your dentist will customize a new tooth for you called dental crown. REMEMBER: Chronic illness like diabetes or leukemia may interfere with the healing after surgery and not a good candidate for implants. If you use tabacco, it can also slow the healing.

Generally, Dental implants are an alternative to dentures for the replacement of missing teeth. The implant itself is usually made of titanium and is embedded in the jawbone in a surgical procedure. It will serve as the "root" or anchor for your new, replacement tooth. Ultimately, after the implant has been integrated with the bone - this can take up to six months - a tooth made to match your natural teeth is attached. The advantage of an implant over dentures is that it gives you a solid new tooth that doesn't shift or move around as you eat or talk, as improperly fitting dentures can. The whole process can take as long as nine months and is not risk-free. You can develop an infection at the implant site, and there’s the possibility of nerve damage that can lead to pain and numbness. Other risks include injury to other teeth, to blood vessels, or to sinuses if the implant impinges on them. Anyhow if need any suggestions contact your local ortho and for online queries contact eugnath.

the problem is the world is filled with scum bags, and they might order some cheap part from china.... I dont know, I have to get an implant vs a root canal, its probably implant because the long term damage of having a dead tooth in the mouth will cause cancer or heart issues... plus they could just butcher you. these things happen to even famous people. kanye west mother died and they have millions.
