|Comment||Thanks for confirming my suspicion. My relationship with this dentist is good, but I am definitely going to discuss the situation with him so perhaps he can avoid the situation with other patients. His decision to place the healing caps immediately covered by a removable overdenture I suspect produced and sustained the infection. In retrospect I would have that he allow the implants to heal over then expose them at a later date when the implants integrated. Thank God at least the job survived, but when the mental and physical cost of the Templar Arteritis is added, the decision to have it done could be regretted. Risk in medicine is s.o.p. but one can't look back without additional distress.|
