Would that be another reason not to have implant?

Most dental implants, such as the posts, are usually made of titanium or some other non-magnetic, non-ferrous (no iron) material. If there are many implanted posts, it's possible such implants could cause distortion for head and neck MRI images. It's not like they're going to be ripped out of your jaw and face though. When you receive the implants, you should also be given a sturdy implant manufacturer reference card/warranty card that identifies sizes, where the implant hardware was made, the material the implant hardware is made of, etc. Carrying the card in your wallet can be handy for the MRI clinic to identify the material more quickly. If you don't have a card, the clinic can easily contact the dental office where the implants were installed for the records on file.

It would be better to simply call an MRI scan clinic and ask them about risks of MRI scans and dental implant hardware.

Wow- thanks for this. I had a breast MRI and they may have asked about metal stuff; I have 5 dental implants so that's highly relevant. No issues with the breast MRI at all.

I need to get those cards from my dentist or oral surgeon. (Likely to be multiple cards since i've gotten them over a 10-year period as natural teeth failed.)

If they don't have the cards, you can request copy of your records, or just have the MRI clinic call for the information which can be faxed to them. If you've already had an MRI scan done, then I don't think you have much to worry about. Just call the MRI clinic and ask them if there's anything to be concerned about. They'll let you know.
