Are there any contraindications regarding dental implant therapy?
There are few contraindications for dental therapy. Some potential contraindications
may be severe systemic disease, a compromised immune system, uncontrolled diabetes,
previous radiation therapy to your jaws, history of IV bisphosphonate medication,
or extreme lack of jaw bone. Often, these conditions and situations when planned
properly may not be absolute contra-indications for dental implant therapy. It is
important for you and your dentist to review your health to determine if dental
implant therapy is right for you.
