Liver Cirrhosis: Are implants an option?

Last Updated January 24, 2017

My patient is a 61 year old male with a history of hypertension. He is currently taking losartan (Cozaar), citalopram (Celexa) and tamsulosin (Flomax). He has no drug allergies. We had met a few months ago and began treatment planning to extract all the maxillary teeth except #4 and place some implants. He just presented yesterday at the wax try in for the denture set up and informed me he was recently diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver. I have to speak to his medical doctor to get some more information. My question is this patient still a candidate for dental implants? Also, what type of precautions need to be taken in the management in a case like this? How would you proceed? Thanks.
