The clinical situation presented here is one where metal sensitivity was a concern and although the patient never experienced dental implants in the past, there was concern on his part in having metal alloy implants in his jaws. This is an increasing trend among patients requesting alternative and non-invasive treatment modalities in all areas of health care.
