Penile prosthesis: Its not that it's unsafe, but more so that it doesn't make sense. A penile prosthesis completely replaces the erectile chambers.

There may be a problem with the device. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: This isn't as straight forward as you would think. The implant companies rate the implants to last 10-15 years. That doesn't mean that you will have to replace the implant or will have problems after 10 years.

Periodontal : Periodontal disease is basically an inflammatory condition where the result is a net bone loss around the teeth. It is due to an inability to clean the food debris and bacteria from the teeth. In order for implants to be successful, a process of integration must occur. This is where the bone in the jaw grows into the threads of the implant locking it tightly to the bone. Active periodontal disease will prevent this from occurring. Also, if you do not maintain the health of the gum and bone around the implant it will loosen and fail. That is why control of periodontal disease is so important. Treatment of periodontal disease can vary depending on the amount and location of the affected areas. Usually treatment starts with a deep cleaning around the roots of the teeth. Once inflammation is controlled, then the areas will be reassessed to see if anything can be done to improve your ability to clean around the teeth. Finally, if there is insufficient bone to support an implant, a bone grafting procedure will be required. All of this can take months to complete. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
