Allergies with Dental Implants

Hello I was wondering if anyone knows that if one has allergies to dental implants, and that it causes headaches and itching: would it be sure-fire that it is only possible for you to be allergic to it if there is redness and itching around the immediate area of the implant?

Because my mom has had a lot of allergies to her implants causing different problems but it is body-wide, not around the implants. We believe she has a titanium allergy and want to get tested but there does not seem to be a place to test for it in the US. I would greatly appreciate any help or any guesses. Thank you.Any experiences appreciated regarding the allergies

Re: Allergies with Dental Implants

Yes, if she were allergic to the implants, there would be irritation around the implants themselves. Has she been tested for other allergies? Food, chemicals, pollen, etc? Do antihistamines help at all?

Thank you Jane.
So its not possible that it would not be caused by the implants unless there was irritation around the implants too, you think?
Yea she has been tested for allergies and is not allergic to nickel and Zyrtec helps her with the itching, when she sleeps, but the itching is very very bothersome sometimes. Also has migraines though thinks is possibly related to it.

We are going to try to test for titanium with the MELISA test. Have any opinion on that? Have to find out more still about it
