Risk of implant failure with Primary Sjogren's Syndrome
Risk of implant failure with Primary Sjogren's Syndrome:
I have primary Sjogren's Syndrome, have not made any saliva for over 15 years. Due to this I have had 50 crowns over the last 30 years, some teeth are on their third crown.
Currently I am considering full mouth implants. What is the risk of failure with this procedure with the autoimmune condition that I have? I have been told never to have dentures because without saliva I will be at risk for infections and other problems.
