Nasal implants and dental infections
I'm not sure how to answer all the speculative questions in there but what I can tell you is, yes. Having a remote infection in the body probably in particular a dental infection either ongoing or recent does raise the probability of a nasal implant such as Gortex or a silicone implant getting infected.
So yes it is possible
