Osteoporosis is a disease where the bones decreases its bone density and subsequently leads to an increase in risk of fractures. Osteoporosis makes the bones weak and brittle. Osteoporosis related fractures most commonly occur in the hip, wrist or spine. This disease affects millions of people all over the world. It affects men and women of all races. Women are four times more likely to develop osteoporosis than men. Research has shown that post-menopausal women are at a higher risk. Medication, a healthy diet and lifestyle and regular exercise can help prevent bone loss and strengthen already weak bones.

Some considerations that you should take into account before having dental implants are placed,
Oral health – In general, dental implants fail because the patient’s oral health is not what is should be, sometimes there is the presence of periodontal disease. Therefore, in order to have a successful dental implant procedure the patient should be periodontal disease free.
Strength, density and volume of bone tissue – The patient needs to have good quality bone left to have an implant, that lasts longer and have a faster healing and recovery, therefore the strength and volume of the bone are very important.
Medication- Medications that you’re taking for osteoporosis as well as other ailments can counteract with a dental implant procedure. For instance, bisphosphanates have been long known to keep the body from reabsorbing bone tissue, but they also affect the ability to heal after a dental implant procedure.
Stop smoking – Smoking is a failure factor in dental implants and bone loss. Nicotine is a vaso constrictor, so blood supply to the bones in the jaw can be compromised.
Presence of other diseases – This can include a decreased immune system or diabetes. Good health is important for good healing of dental implants.
Those who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis, dental implants may still be a possibility. If osteoporosis has affected other parts of a person’s body, there is a possibility that it has not caused a decrease in jawbone mass or breakdown of these tissues. The general success rate for dental implants is about 97% and also bone grafting was successful in some patients as well.
