Avatar n tn - If now my body rejects those material it didn't earlier, I would remove my implant and would not wait until my whole immune system gone crazy, and start attacking own body like cartilage in joints, etc. Some said once it's gone crazy, there is no return to normal. It's like having vaccine to change your immune system. I hope it's not true. Sorry for a long post. But I hope my story will make everyone be more cautious about having this implant done.
Avatar f tn Thirty-five subjects out of 1500 implant patients treated and/or examined (2002–2004) were selected for Ti allergy analysis. Sixteen presented allergic symptoms after implant placement or unexplained implant failures [allergy compatible response group (ACRG)], while 19 had a history of other allergies, or were heavily Ti exposed during implant surgeries or had explained implant failures [predisposing factors group (PFG)]. Thirty-five controls were randomly selected (CG) in the Allergy Centre.
Avatar n tn He, too, needed bone graft which takes a little time to grow, but it must be dense enough to support the post. The procedure to implant the graft material was relatively painless afterwards (he had some sedation during the procedure) -- he followed the doctor's advice about icing on schedule. My 23-year old niece had a bone graft when she was about 10 years old because the gum did not completely cover the root on one of her permanent teeth (on the side) when it first came in.

Avatar m tn because the bulky area underneath my upper left lip, every time when I smile, that part of lip become thick and relative big when compare to the right side of my upper lip as the bulky surgical area underneath the lip push against the lip when I smile. will this be permanent? or it is too early to say now and bulkyness could reduce over time as time pass by and my smile will become normal? Thanks.
Avatar m tn I have had breast implants and two lip implant surgeries (I got Gore-Tex in my lips but am considering replacing them with another material as they are a bit "stiff" though they look good). I have considered rhinoplasty and cheek lipo in the past (the facial cheeks, that is!) but am glad I didn't do them. Plastic surgery leaves effects that are forever, so be sure you want the changes you're making! I have breast implants I think are WAY too big for me and regret them so much now.
1819855 tn?1317140999 Do you know if a zirconium implant will be a better choice versus a Titanium implant or the damage of an implant is bad....period...no matter what material is it made of? I am asking because I am researching this subject for months now and I KNOW, in Europe now (I was born there but had been living in North America for many many years) dentists use more and more the zirconium implants. My main problem is making this decision of having...
Avatar f tn Titanium implant fixture is a time proven treatment modality.
Avatar n tn About 6 weeks after his surgery he developed hives that were localized below his waist and down the sides of his trunk. In addition, his upper lip and uvula have been swollen on occasion. We already know there was no cement used during the replacement. He has been on prednisone twice, has taken 50 mg. of Benedryl every 6 hours for 30 days, and has been on Zyrtec and Tagamet every night for the past two months. He also went to an allergist who did thyroid studies on him.
660300 tn?1224793961 I had my Wisdom Teeth taken out 2 weeks ago...ever since then my right lip and chin have been completely numb...I went back to the Oral Surgeon who wants to wait a month to see what happens, I have a follow up appointment in November right before Thanksgiving. Is there anything I can do to help? Based on common experience, how long does nerve damage "usually" take to heal? I feel like I am in the dark...I cannot stand it...
Avatar n tn I have had the dental material compatibility test but the dentist who placed these fillings doesn't have any records about what was used. They use whatever is cheapest or whatever the last rep sold them and don't even bother to record which material is used. What's bad too is even though the materials can cause a systemic allergy, the problem is in your mouth and so medical insurance wont touch it. Dot to have dental insurance.
Avatar n tn Not to mention I couldn't close my upper lip over my front dentures so I looked like I was constantly confused or disgusted at something. The top dentures kept wanting to fall out of place, too. I also have the problem of, when I close my lips, I look like I have a wad of chew in my lower lip due to my swollen gums and the pink part of the denture, right below the teeth, the part that looks like your gums, being rounded and sticking out due to my swollen gums.
Avatar n tn It is the last molar in the back, can it be attached to just one side. I am scared of getting an implant. I am so frustrated.
Avatar m tn Let whatever is in your nose and sinuses drain slowly out of your nostrils, while the hot water of the shower falls on your chest. Put a finger across your top lip if you don’t like the salty water getting in your mouth. After about 20 seconds, snort inward, so the mucus goes into your throat, then do some hawking, and spit it out of your mouth. Repeat once or twice. Then, close one nostril, and blow out the open nostril as slowly and gently as you can.
Avatar f tn however, multiple plaques are relatively common. Usually localized on the chin, cheeks, or neck, involvement of the upper lip is rare. The characteristic lesion is an inflammatory reddish nodule with pustules and draining sinuses on the surface. Hairs are loose or broken, and depilation is easy and painless. Pus-filled whitish masses involve the hair root and follicle. Over time, the surface of the indurated nodule is covered by exudate and crust.
Avatar n tn i also have subcutaneous cysts, my doctor said... i was at the gyno and freaked out cause there was a bump on my lip... it got really sore but wasn't an actual sore. it was deep under and went away after a while (the hormones in the pill definitely have an affect on the entire vagina... cysts of any type can be caused from change in levels of hormones). i've been off and on two types of b.c. since the cyst, i hate it...
1055869 tn?1294203119 From what my doctor explained to me before, even on the progesterone tablets you can start to bleed, if you did not implant. But if you don't, once you stop taking the progesterone, your period is supposed to come shortly after.
Avatar n tn Then, just two days ago, another episode and fainting spell. Unfortunately, I went head first and split open my nose, and now have a puffy lip and somewhat of black eyes. But, I do find that it may be after a stressful event and I was probably constipated and finally relaxed and/or I have eaten some rich foods. My husband suggested to take deep breaths more, and not hold my breath. I just don't want it to happen where I hurt myself again, more serious, and no one is around.
