If you have dental implants can you use the SSC microcurrent machine?

I'm going in for some implants next week... had the sinus lift some time ago but with the implants will this machine hurt my dental work? For some reason I thought someone once posted we couldn't use it for that reason?? So tempted to try this but not at the cost of hurting my dental work! Need help fast as only a couple of more hrs. to purchase it!! Thanks very much in advance ladies!!!

It works on the skin of your face and neck. Why would it bother dental implants which are in your mouth?

I have one dental implant and have not had any issues...I've had my EGG since November and just ordered my second one earlier today.

I'm not sure either but I sort of remember reading this here and thought the same thing... something to do with the electrical hurts the metal implants eventually or something to that effect. I didn't pay close attention but now I'm getting the implants, and it's super expensive! Around $8,000 after all is done so I am unwilling to ruin that for a beauty machine.

Good question.

Well I shoud have read the product info over there but didn't and here's what it said:

  • When used as directed, user may experience a strong tingling sensation.
  • Consult a physician prior to use if you are pregnant, have metal implants, have a pacemaker or other electronic implants, heart problems, cancer, diabetes, epilepsy and seizures or other severe medical illnesses, or if you've had recent facial surgery. So, sounds like I can't use this without asking my oral surgeon first. Can't get this deal today... shucks! I was so tempted Smile

Had to hop online when I saw you mention implants. I had the sinus lift in Feb. That surgery was crazy! The implants are supposed to be a breeze in comparison.

Anyways, I have the S. Somers Facemaster, don't know of which appliance you are speaking of. But I do know that Suzanne has said hers is okay to use with implants.

From reading what you printed though, I doesn't seem compatible with the implants.

Oh thank you chandeliers for your input on the actual implant surgery. I have been a little nervous. My sinus lift was pretty easy for me. Healed up quickly and had no pain to speak of... hope to be finished soon with all of my dental work {#emotions_dlg.crying}

Its too late this time, but if one is in a time crunch with an expiring price, order the item. Check with medical professional tomorrow and cancel if necessary.

Thanks for posting this. I use the Isomers one and better check to see if I can go back to using mine again!! I too am having a sinus lift and implants? Im not looking forward to it at all! I had two implants to replace two back lower molars. now need them on the other side upper. it was very uncomfortable for me. Since I have to have the sinus lift this time around I'll use a differant dentist that specializes in it. Am going for a second opinion before I make my choice. I really like the first guy but he stated to me 4 times that there are complications involved esp with sinus infections,which made me feel he was not very confident. Last edited on 4/20/2013

I wouldn't.I used the Connie Stevens face machine years ago and the teeth that had deep fillings and crowns tingled like mad.It was like neuralgia(sp) pain.

This is still available at the TS price at 10:39 pm pst....I am pretty sure all micro current technology is the same and if SS says you can use hers with implants then i would try it...You can always send back if you don't like it.

I forgot to say above i got this after midnight and used the 5.00 off code and it worked!...This will be faster than Isomers i think and i like that you roll it around instead..

I am so glad to see this thread! I have had a sinus lift with implants, and I was

concerned about this, too. I certainly don't want to do any damage. My surgeries

were done about 3 years ago.
