Passive Cigarette Smoke Inhalation: Effect on osseointegration?

While many studies implicate active smoking as a significant factor in the failure of dental implants, an interesting question is whether passive smoking inhalation has a negative impact on osseointegration. A recent review 1, of nine clinical studies was undertaken to assess the influence of involuntary cigarette smoke inhalation (ICSI) on the stability of implants.
The authors conclude that:

ICSI may negatively influence osseointegration of dental implants. It is imperative to educate patients about the negative effects of passive smoking on dental and systemic health. Read More

Have you incorporated any patient education into your practice regarding the impact of passive smoking on implant treatment success?
