Lip Implants: Any Risks Involved with Having Wisdom Teeth Pulled?

Lip implant risk and dental work depends on what lip implant the health of the person and what is being done

Some lip implants are more likely to get infected. In my experience, goretex is more likely than silicone lip implants to get infected. With implants, you may want to consider antibiotics prior to any dental procedure. Now a days the risks are thought to be much lower than before. I would tell your dentist, however.

There should be no problems with removal of third molars with lip implants.  Make sure your surgeon is aware of the implants so that no excess stress is placed on them with retraction during the procedure.  Hope this answers your question.  Donald R.
