Sharon, a prospective dental implant patient from New York, asks:
I am a 48 year old female in excellent health with an allergy to nickel. I have problems wearing any metal jewelry for more than a few hours. I am scheduled for mini-implant placement next week. I'm wondering, if any negative effects have been reported in dental implant patients who may have a metal allergy or sensitivity? Any information, such as recent studies etc., would be appreciated.
