Has anyone had dental implants? I'm having the post put in next week and am wondering what to expect afterwards. I'm a little nervous about it.

in nov 2008 i was head butted by a horse, breaking my jaw, nose and killing my tooth. jan 2009 i got the surgery to have a dental implant, surgery wasn't that bad but the healing progress wasn't the best i re-broke my jaw from the screw and built up an infection was on penicillin for 5 months and could not get my final tooth, i also had to have 3 minor surgeries after wards and the thought of taking it out came up a few times, it wasn't that pleasant...finally in dec 2009 i received my final tooth! and it's all done! its still a bit painful from time to time but it's nothing serious, also it depends on what tooth it is, mine was my very front tooth where it's more sensitive.

don't let this scare you! also they say the older you are its worse, don't let them say that! i was 19 when i got mine! and im almost 21 and still going on with it! but they did a GREAT job and you can hardly tell it's there! and alot of people don't even notice it! but it take awhile to get use too!

but best wishes!
here is a xray of mine! very scary to know thats in my jaw!

I lost all but four of my teeth to stage IV periodontitis..I was not aware I had it. This was about 25 years ago. At the time, I was getting "gum infections" and my dentist simply wasn't aware of gum disease. I know that sounds impossible, but true. He kept giving me penicillin to take for the gum infection. Long story short, he was out of town when I had a painful tooth and went to an oral surgeon who said to me "are you aware you have gum disease?" at which point, I went to a periodontist and found out the extent of damage...had to have most of my teeth pulled. I have 11 implants. I was fortunate to find a wonderful periodontist who then recommended a dentist who did beautiful restoration work. I've never had one problem with any of the implants. Best of luck to you.

Hey Puppylover, I've had 5 dental implants..all since the diagnosis of fibro. My only complaint was the cost and the time involved for the compete process.

The procedure was not painful with only minimal discomfort afeterwards. I had no flares or additional fatigue.

Good luck and take good care of yourself.

Thanks for the replies. I think the worse part of this is I can't take anything that thins my blood for 5 days before. My arthritis is pretty bad right now and Tylenol doesn't do much for it. Oh well, just a few more days.
