Is the implant absolutely contraindicated? ” It may seem unusual to some, but our categorical answer is always the same: NO!

CAN THE IMPLANT BE CATEGORICALLY CONTRAINDICATED?

Dental implant surgery has no absolute contraindications, even if you smoke or treat with corticosteroids. Even if you have been diagnosed with osteoporosis, diabetes or chemotherapy, we tell you that in any of the above situations you would find yourself, you can benefit from dental implants.

At first glance, the fact that the dental implant has no absolute contraindications may seem unlikely to many, but our experience proves otherwise, more precisely that it is just a myth.

LEGENDS AND PREJUDICE

Myths and prejudices about banning dental implants (in some cases) start from the old textbooks of surgery - implantology. They were introduced as a subject of study about 25-30 years ago, and most of the students at that time are implantologists who now operate. Some of them have a certain reluctance and take precautions, others contraindicate dental implants to patients diagnosed with certain diseases.

On the other hand, during all this time, medicine in general and dental implantology in particular have evolved at an extremely rapid pace. Conditions that were once treated in a certain way are now treated differently, much more effectively.

GENERAL CONTRAINDICATIONS

General contraindications refer to diseases and conditions that result in the impossibility of using a dental implant. These are:

ACUTE AND CHRONIC DISEASES

  • Insulin-dependent diabetes
  • Polyarticular rheumatism
  • infections
  • leukemia
  • Heart or other organ disorders

People who have suffered a myocardial infarction they can undergo dental implant surgery about 1 year after the accident. Those with cardiovascular disease do not have difficulty healing, but some preventive measures are required to minimize possible problems during the operation.

Patients with diabetes they may have difficulty healing. In the case of mild diabetes, antibiotic therapy is done 2 days before the application of dental implants. After 10 days from the implant, the procedure is repeated.

ENDOCRINE DISEASES

acromegaly
Hyper and hypothyroidism
obesity

Whether we are talking about intervention or we are referring to the post-operative period, the candidates who present these diseases do not present any contraindications.

PSYCHOLOGICAL, NEUROLOGICAL DISEASES OR ANXIETY

  • Parkinson's
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Epilepsy
  • Paralysis
  • Trigeminal neuralgia

People with mental / neurological diseases or who have certain phobias can have a dental implant under general anesthesia. For patients with anxiety problems and anesthesia ban, Dr. Lorelei Nassar provides medical hypnosis.

INFECTIONS

  • pox
  • Tuberculosis
  • AIDS
  • Other infectious haematological diseases

Contraindications for patients with certain conditions such as infections are temporary. These people need to be treated and then can benefit from dental implants.

Patients with tuberculosis or sarcoidosis may have a poor response to healing surgical lesions.

SMOKING

Smoking is not an absolute contraindication, even if smokers heals more slowly after surgery than non-smokers. However, it should be noted that the decrease in the number of cigarettes, both before and after the implant, will contribute positively to implant life. Consequently, it is advisable for smokers to quit smoking.

BONE SYSTEM DISEASES

  • osteoporosis
  • Acute rheumatoid arthritis
  • Other bone diseases

As explained in the video above, even for patients with osteoporosis, the implant is not an absolute contraindication, but only temporary.
