I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and i had juvenille rhuematoid arthritis as a child that is now in remission. The rheumatologist suspects that i will develop some other type of autoimmune disorder later in life, i have my bloodwork done routinely to check for changes. I have had a titanium dental implant for about 4 yrs and it is now failing. The oral surgeon and dentist are wondering if this could have something to do w/ the possible autoimmune disorder. I was wondering if anyone w/ autoimmune disorders have had trouble w/ ur body rejecting a titanium implant of any kind, such as a hip or knee or screws.
