Medications have a profound effect on a patient’s oral condition.
For instance, beta blockers and calcium channel blockers can cause gingival problems. Now we have other drugs, such as Fosamax (helps women with osteoporosis), to contend with. We are told and read that you should not remove a tooth for a woman on Fossomax because of possible bone necrosis.
How do these medications effect the implant planning process? Do we have to worry about dental implant placement with these medications and what, if any, medications do we have to consider? Feel free to leave your comments below.
