Does local and systemic statin delivery affect osseointegration around implants? There have been several studies addressing this question. 1,2,3. Some of the conclusions:
The histomorphometric data from available preclinical studies suggest a positive effect of statins on increasing osteogenesis around dental implants. Read More
On experimental grounds, local and systemic statin delivery seems to enhance osseointegration; however, from a clinical perspective, further studies are needed to assess the role of statins in promoting osseointegration around dental implants. Read More
