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.

Implant problems with Sjogrens
by: Bruce

I am a 57 year old male with a 30 year history of Sjogrens. Needless to say I have about $50,000.00 in dental restoration over those years. I have 3 implants and stopped the 4th one due to bone density problems even after two bone grafts.

This problem can be caused by Prednisone. Steroids can cause calcium loss that can effect implants.
