Elevated Liver enzymes Titanium Allergy?

Can Elevated Liver enzymes be caused by Dental titanium Implants..i have had this come back in my blood work 2 times now...Ever since I got my implants i havent felt right.. my tongue is always red and burns..i am dizzy and tired.. have unexplained rashes.ringing in my ears...I go tomorrow for more blood work. I have an appt with an Allergist in a few weeks.. and hopefully he can tell me if I am having a reaction to titanium...I am allergic to certain metals..have always been and told my dentist that when he suggested titanium implants to secure my bottom dentures.  
I have ringing in my ears also since getting these implants..hoping someone can tell me if any of this sounds familiar to them...

Hi, your symptoms could be due to an immune response to titanium. Immune response to implants is commonly reported in the literature and can include hypersensitivity related to pacemakers, dental implants and orthopedic appliances. The MELISA test is the only scientifically-proven test which can objectively diagnose titanium allergy and measure its severity. You can discuss this with your doctor.

Those who test positive are advised to avoid exposure if possible. This may include switching to titanium-free toothpaste and cosmetics, or in some cases, consider removing a titanium implant from the body. Regards.
