Mini Implants

Posted by: Dawnda  (7 years ago)
I was a prior smoker,I almost made it a year. Almost 3 weeks ago, I got a mini implant. Now with the holidays I am getting stressed. I have smoked 3 cigarettes in the past couple days. Do I have to worry about jeopardizing my implant now?

Well, smoking decreases the success of implants by a little, but I doubt 3 cigarettes in 2 days will kill the implant.

Dr HK is right, 3 cigarettes won't make a difference, but since you are at it, why not take advantage of this wonderful time frame to just quit altogether. It won't be any harder but chances of not going backwards will be highly improved. I quit smoking 31 years ago and never touched a cigarette again since. Thanks to that I am still alive and well.

Dear Colleague Jose Alonso,

Could you please stop posting such crap. Why crap?

We all know that implants may have a shorter life expectancy for smokers, especially in the case of those in women’s upper jaws due to loss of bone. Apart from that, what’s all this stupid individual comparison with your own personal situation? This isn’t medicine.

We both know what it’s about for you – making a quick buck and not the good of patients. I’m not mad with you for having a childish viewpoint and thinking that money will make you happier. We had no – or hardly any - money when we were students and were we any less happy? I don’t know if you can still recall the enthusiasm with which we studied. We believed that we would be helping people first and foremost but then somehow we were diverted into a treatment-oriented medicine, where it’s not about health but about the amounts.

If you had considered checkdent a little more carefully you would have noticed that some of our colleagues are truly a help to people here. Actually it’s about both – helping people and making money. What you’re trying to achieve, more money, will happen on its own and in addition you’ll get something else, something that is difficult to buy with money – feeling good.

With this in mind, please do not use this platform for your advertising slogans. Instead, please help to really explain things to people. That way, together, we can really make a difference in medicine.
Liebe Grüße JB
