Can taking anti inflammatory medications or supplements interfere with my body's ability to accept a dental implant?

by achacanawaman

Can taking anti inflammatory medications or supplements interfere with my body's ability to accept a dental implant? Is there a comprehensive list of do's and don'ts following implant surgery?

I am a non-smoker who had 5 successful implants 1.5 years ago, then had an implant 6 months ago that my body rejected.
Thanks

Medications and Implants
by: Sharon B., RDH

Hi achacanawaman,

Your implant specialist should have reviewed your entire health history with you prior to placing the dental implants. There are only certain medications that require patients to not receive dental treatment, and usually your MD or pharmacist will make sure you are aware of this...such as blood thinners. If you review your entire list of medications and supplements with your MD, dentist and pharmacist then one of them should be able to direct you in if one of them might have inhibited healing. Otherwise, it sounds like it was just a fluke that your body rejected it. Sometimes the anatomical makeup of where the dental implant is inserted is different and more prone to infection.
