Dental implants in a young patient on Remicade infusions for cervical spondylitis?

Last Updated April 05, 2017

I have a 39 year old male, non-smoker, with cervical spondylosis who gets an infusion of infliximab (Remicaide) every 6 weeks. He is not taking methotrexate or a steroid. I have recently extracted #30 and #19. Both had failed root canal treatment and vertical fractures. I am planning on inserting an implant in each site. Does anyone have any recommendations on how to proceed? Should we stop infliximab (remicaide) 1 month prior to implant insertion or does it not matter? Will this have a significant influence on osseointegration?
