Yeast Infections since Dental Implants: I am experiencing persistent and frequent yeast infections (in mouth and vagina) since having 3 dental implants installed 6 months ago.
Is this problem related to my dental implants or coincidental?
I would like to get another dental implant but am unsure if it is wise. ... Visitor from CA
I have been placing implants for more than 20 years and have never heard of anything like this.
All I can think of would be if strong antibiotics were prescribed when the implants were placed, or perhaps by a physician - for something else.
I'd review your prescription history for the past 6 months with a pharmacist and see if that could be a factor.
I don't think I would be afraid of having the additional implant completed.
