Patients with cardiovascular disease and or cardiovascular risk factor submitted to dental implant surgery require monitoring by multidisciplinary team.
During osseointegration some factors that increase implant failure rate include health problems that affect the bone healing process such as uncontrolled diabetes (cardiovascular risk factor).
After osseointegration, clinical and radiographic follow up of these patients with implants should include evaluations of pain, mobility, bone crest loss, probing depth and peri-implantitis. Also, genetic factors such as polymorphisms in interleukin-1 genes can be used to monitor the status of the implant site and minimize the chances of failure.
