Will Taking Steroids For A Short Period Of Time Make My Dental Implants Fall Out?

April 11th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr. Moore. Would taking steroids for shingles for 5 days cause an implant that was in my mouth for 16 months to fall out? I don`t smoke or take any other medication. I took the steroids for 5 days but the shingles were caught early and cleared up within 3 months. I had 2 implants put in, 1 took 28 months for my dentist to put in and the other 16 months. The latter got infected. My question still remains, could taking steroids for a short period of time affect implants?

My dental implant treatment was unsuccessful, will I need to have a bone graft?

March 16th, 2012
Q.

i recently went for four titanium implants which were inserted but woul not bite into the bone so when it was attempted to insert the screw to the implant the implant merely turned with the screwing action.The bone appeared to be to soft for the implant to grip. The implant could not be screwed deeper due to the location of my sinuses and nose, I would like to know if there is an alternative implant that would overcome this problem preferably without the need of bone grafting and given that the problem is soft bone would bone grafting be any use anyway.

How do I keep my dental implants clean and free of infection?

January 16th, 2012
Q.

Hello,
I am seriously considering to undertake All on 4 teeth replacement based on what I read in your article here.
I have 73 years and after the war in Europe the only dental treatment in my region was tooth extraction mostly done by general MD or DIY..
By the age 20 I had most of my back teeth in the upper jaw and in the lower jaw missing.

Thus my jaw bone was not stimulated for over 50 years.
I am retired now and wear dentures.
In the lower jaw I managed to save 4 teeth in front. Dentures are now in need of repair.
I am wearing full denture in the upper jaw and partial denture in the lower jaw.

Have a question about dental hygiene after
All on 4 procedure is completed..
How do I clean those implants to prevent infection and loss of stability of the implant.
Even if implants are from special metal, bacterias can and will collect around implants and cause damage and cause periodontal disease around implants. Are there special techniques and tools to clean thoroughly at least once a day and preferably every time after eating sweets.
Implants will be covered completely covered and invisible and impossible to clean unless I go to a Clinic where they will be able to remove dentures to expose implants and that will significantly increase cost clinic to write a brief article about this important issue.
Many thanks for your help to clarify the maintenance procedures after All on 4 implants are placed in mouth.
Sincerely

My implants keep failing. What does this mean and what can be done?

March 8th, 2011
Q.
I got dental implants on the top of my mouth 2.5 years ago. Thats how long I have been going through this. I have had 1 fail after another. Right now I think I have 2 failing. Should I keep going through this pain if they are going to keep failing? I just don’t understand why I am having so much trouble. And my dentist says he doesn’t understand either, what does that mean?,

I awoke to a cracking sound from grinding my teeth and developed a bacterial infection. Still hurts to put pressure on it. What could it be?

December 13th, 2010
Q.
I had 3 dental implants placed 9 months ago. Everything was fine, but after waking up to a \”cracking\” sound from grinding my teeth in the middle of the night – I have had pressure and pain over one of the teeth. Dentist took x-rays a month ago and said everything was fine. However since then I developed a bacterial infection the left sde of my face. Doctor says it was probably a sinus infection and I have taken antibiotics. The bacteria pain has eased, but it still hurts to put pressure on the tooth. Could it be sinus or the tooth. I know with a real tooth the sinus could cause this pressure, but not sure if that is the same for implants. This particular tooth is one that had a sinus lift. Not sure where to go now. Advise please,
