Can Implants be placed if you have Osteoporosis?

February of 2012 the Journal of Oral Implantology reported that the research they conducted found that patients receiving immediate implant placement procedures while on drug therapy for osteoporosis has a very good success rate. That is great news!!! The patients were taking medicines (bisphosphonates) for less than three years. They advise that if you have taken bisphosphonates for more than three years, you increase the risk of developing bisphosphonate-induced osteonecrosis of the jaw.
