Hi Doctor Moore, I am scheduled for a titanium implant. The doctor I see for gluten sensitivity strongly advises against it based on her own experience and research about after effects, e.g., infection and electrical conductivity with old metal fillings. She had the implant removed as it seriously affected her health and had a Maryland bridge put in place. The tooth I need replaced is the second right of front which I am concerned would look grey with the metal attachments. However, my three remaining front teeth are crowns as it is. What is your position on this issue? Is there a link between gluten sensitivity and dental implant success? Do you think this should be an issue I may have to take up with my own dentist? I’m not sure what to think about receiving the treatment now…Thank you for your help.
