Dentist: Beware of imported dental implants
Dr. Craig Spodak is concerned about an increasing number of dental implants, bridges and crowns that are being manufactured overseas in countries like China and India for about one-sixth the cost. But with less guarantee of regulation, he says, the imported products have shown dangerous levels of toxic chemicals in rare cases. The long-term effects are still unknown, and many patients in the U.S. have no idea their dental items are being made elsewhere.
