Dental Implants Complications in Patients with Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative ColitisDental implants are the most successful treatment options for people with missing teeth, poor-fitting dentures or dry mouths.

If people with a dry mouth can learn the secrets of the book, Dirty Mouth, then they can prevent additional tooth problems such as cavities and broken teeth. If you do not have the desire to try to fight and keep your teeth, then the 3 Minute Implant™ is a great option, for it reduces that chance of surgical and tooth complications.

Consider these 3 complications with dental implants in the Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis patient:

  1. Due to malnutrition, your immune system may be weakened: Reduce this complication with proper balanced nourishment, even in liquid form if needed due to a painful mouth. Place green vegetables, protein powder, fruit and water into an emulsifying blender. Drink slowly. This will reduce the need for chewing and increase the probability for proper nourishment and an improved immune system. 
  2. Mouth sores due to rough dentures: Reduce this complication by placing dental implants and use a soft liner so as to be kinder to the soft tissues underneath the denture areas. 
  3. Increased dental implant failure: If you do not have proper nutrition and follow the dentist’s guidance, you may experience a higher dental implant failure rate. Reduce this complication by having good nutrition.
