The sore throat may be due to sleeping with your mouth open, which may be the result of improper "Occlusion" - the way your denture teeth come together in contact when you close together. The headaches mayalso be related to your "occlusion". I would ask the dentist to evaluate your "occlusion", or "bite" after explaining your symptoms to him. This could be a relatively simple way to correct your issue. It is much less likely that the implants, themselves, are the basis of the problem.

Hope this helps,

Dr. Shernan

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
