54 and am losing all of my teeth this year due to bad genes. I took care of my teeth too. I also took extra good care of my daughters, hers are really bad at 26.

Am going to be getting dentures, am going to Philadelphia where they can do a few implants to give me snap in dentures. One big question I now have is can my body reject the implants? I have a fused L5S1 which my body rejects. Worst mistake I've ever made and am wondering if I could be allergic to the material of the implant so am looking to see if anyone else has done it and how did it go? I have an immune disorder where I'm allergic to a lot of medications. I've even gotten sensitive to wearing sterling silver earrings. Reading one implant thread here has me questioning if I may have allergies to the metal too. I'll have to ask what the implants are made of.

I really didn't want the top denture to cover my pallet because my dad was miserable with his, he said it was the pits affecting taste but as I'm nearing making my extraction appointment I'm really questioning doing the implants. I'm sure it will also be very painful. I live with chronic back pain from my failed fusion. I couldn't handle having more allergy issues due to implants.

What did your surgeon say about the risks/benefits/alternatives of dental implants after reviewing this information?

I haven't discussed it with him yet because I never thought about it until seeing an allergy thread here. Will next time I see him.

Did your surgeon review your medical history with you during the consultation/treatment planning appointment?


Definitely make sure all your questions are answered before any treatment is rendered. Seek multiple opinions if you have doubts.

I don't recall how involved it got and if he asked about allergies. Wish I could remember
