Overview of medical risk factors for implantology

Does the patient’s medical status matter or are we just interested in how much bone there is available for implant placement? Do we need to be aware of medical disease process for maintenance and placements alike? Poly-pharmacy and reduced healing capacities do these matter, are we worried?

There will be a brief overview to try and make some sense of what is important. Myths will be looked at as well as worrying trends and how this impacts on ongoing success.
