Dental implants and autoimmune diseases
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. Dental implants look like a titanium screw. To this screw, the dentist will attach the restoration device (crown, bridge, etc). In this article we will discuss the link between the dental implants and autoimmune diseases.

Currently, implants continue to be done without biocompatibility testing, and they are often used in extraction sites where inflammation is already developing.
Autoimmune diseases seem to be often aggravated or even initiated by implants.

Additionally, an event called oral galvanism occurs when you place two dissimilar metals in your mouth. You essentially create a battery that will serve to drive the ions of the metals out of the metal into your mouth and also generate electricity.

You may not realize it, but tiny electrical currents are foundational to the way your body operates biologically, and when you introduce a foreign source of electricity, especially one that is constantly there, you can introduce imbalances that can contribute to health problems.

This galvanic toxicity created when the metal in your mouth reacts with your saliva can over-stimulate your brain. This is true whether the metal in your mouth is a silver filling, a metal crown, or a metal dental implant.

- Common signs and symptoms of galvanic toxicity include:
- A metal taste in your mouth
- A sensation of an electric charge when using metal utensils
- Chronic insomnia

Finding suitable materials to replace the metals currently used is proving to be a challenge. However, you may now have access to a far better option if you need to have an entire tooth replaced.
