Dental implants - impact on prostate?

Posts: 8

I "need" dental implants but have questions. Is there any link between implants and prostate health. The implants are made of titanium. I'm also told that I would need to swab them every night for the rest of my life with Periogard (chlorhexidine gluconate) to prevent/fight infection. Anyone with experience in these matters - especially impact on prostate? Many thanks
