Do you live in Hawaii? I love Hawaii and have been there 6 times. I especially like Mauai and Kauai!
I am sorry to hear that you are having problems with your dental implant. Issues pertaining to the Oral Cavity can have a profound impact on your health, as you are finding out!
I do not have any experiences with dental implants myself. However, My daughter has had Oral Cavity issues in the past. Some of her immune incompetence was exacerbated by Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) issues centered in her oral cavity. She received Oral System Balancing (OSB) and CranioSacro Therapy to eliminate that imbalance.
It is well established fact that placing foreign materials into the body can cause immune issues, especially when done to the Oral Cavity. I have to ask this question. Were the materials used in the dental implant tested for compatibility with your body? If not, then I would surmise that your ANS has been compromised, and that you are experiencing a flare reaction. I would also surmise that if the implant was to be removed, that your flare symptoms would subside.
I am sensitive to the problem that has been created here. Now you will have a gap in your teeth. You have 3 choices of where to go from here: 1.) another implant 2.) bridge 3.) partial denture. Whatever you decide- the materials MUST be tested for compatibility, or else you may have the exact same problem.
I have found that most dentists are as ignorant about
this kind of issue as most MD's are about
Lyme and coinfections! There is a certain group of dentists that have gone beyond their dental school training, and have gained an understanding of these issues. These dentists are known as "Biological Dentists."
By the way, my dental bridge is about
40 years old now. I am faced with the same problem. Will I replace it with a bridge or dental implant. I would prefer the implant, but will it cause health issues for me? This would be an unknown unless I first have compatibility testing first.
I know of several people that have had health issues because of things done to their Oral Cavity. They were able to resolve the problem when the proper steps were taken to address it.
We are older parents and Heather is our only child. She became so sick and debilitated that we thought that she was going to die, and everything looked so hopeless and bleak. However, God answered our prayers, and used the healing hands of Dr. J. at the Hansa Center to more than restore the health of our precious daughter. I have a moral obligation to help others that are likewise suffering!
