Could implants affect iron levels ?

I have an interesting question – Could implants affect iron levels ?

I had 4 implants 4 months ago. I suffer from haemachromatosis – iron overload, and have venisections to lessen the saturate of iron in the body. Over the last couple of months my iron has shot up and I am feeling extremely unwell, panic attacks depression, loss of appetite, claustrophobia to name a few.

Could this possibly be because of implants? Could I be allergic to them?

    Titanium implants contain no iron

    Dental implants are made of pure titanium and contain no iron so the implants are most likely not affecting your iron levels. It is also very rare to have allergic reactions to titanium implants as titanium is a very biocompatible metal.

    I would recommend that you see your medical doctor for more blood work to determine what is going on.
