Unfortunately, the golden rule of allergy is to avoid the offending substance. For temporary relief you can take immuno suppresive medication such as cortisone but this is no long term solutions. There exists ad blood test, MELISA, which can diagnose metal allergy. If an allergy is diagnosed to a metal present in your implant, you should consider having it replaced. You can also try to avoid exposure to metals from other sources such as smoking, occupation, jewellery and polluted food and water. Vitamin and mineral supplements, such as Vitanim C and selenium, will help the body to get rid of toxic metals and might improved your well-being.

Dental implants are made out of many materials. In the three step process, the implant that is inserted into the gum is made out of titanium. The abutment is then attached to the implant and can be made out of titanium, surgical stainless steel and gold or zirconia which is a white ceramic. Then there is the crown that is cemented onto the abutment. This crown can be made from stainless steel, metal, porcelain fused to metal, resin or ceramic.

Dental implants also called as tooth implants can be answer to your missing teeth. A dental implant is an artificial metal tooth root that an dental Implantologist like Dr. Vikas Gowd places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants procedure is a very technique sensitive treatment. The tooth implant process involves a small high-tech titanium fixture that serves as a replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. Titanium is used for the implants since it is the most biocompatible with the human body. It is a surgical positioning of the metal posts or frames into the jawbone. For this, an artificial tooth called crown is placed on the extension of the dental implant and then drilled into the jawbone beneath your gums to give you the look of real teeth.
