I have 2 dental implants and seem to be have same problems fluid in ears and drain from sinus in morning. jaw pain that shoots up side of head to ear and sinus headaches. I've seen primary and ear nose and throat doctors who see no problems. The dentist says x-rays of implants look good. also tells me reactions to metal are rare. I'm ready to look at rare.

I have had four implants over the past year under the expertise of the local dental college. In their carefulness, they discovered the need for a sinus uplift before one of my implants could be completed. I feel very fortunate for the precaution taken to keep my sinus, which had dropped into the area that the implant would be placed, from being compromised. The process for that implant took longer yet I couldn't be more satisfied. My previous sinus problems and earaches have been relieved, and my implants are awesome.

I may not be using the correct descriptive language, but I thought my experience might be helpful information for you.

Also, I have had metal reactions in the past so had those concerns, and have not experienced any at all with these posts.
