My dental implant of first molar in lower jaw became infected after five months and had to be removed. I have fibromyalgia, chronic meningitis, and wear a mouth guard due to clenching.

My Oral surgeon wants to put in new implant. Should I consider a bridge instead? This has caused a lot of trauma and pain, worsening my medical conditions and I don't know if I should continue with this process.

Is there an increased risk of failure again? And of damage to the bone and tissue?
Thank you.

Has anyone ever experienced your ears ringing during or after a dental implant put in. I had the procedure started about 3 months ago. My ears began ringing after my last visit to the dentist when he checked it about 2 weeks ago.

HI Debra
This should be your decision.
Nobody can influence you ,if you think you are not ready for implant - go for a bridge.

Ringing in the Ears NEW
by: E from Prague

I had a front upper implant infected and removed after about four months. After removal, I was left with this persisting ringing in my ears, chills on my scalp, headaches and a feeling of coming down with a flu. Plus the place where the implant was is throbbing sometimes during the day. I have no infection, as proven by blood tests, but I cannot get rid of these symptoms, which are driving me into depression. Doctors are now prescribing me antidepressants. Has anyone experienced similar problems or symptoms? Please help.
