Many, mostly older patients suffer from osteoporosis: a chronic skeletal disease causing bone to become more porous and less strong. 2 recent systematic reviews and one long-term prospective multicentre case-control study showed that placing implants in osteoporosis patients is not contraindicated. From these studies it can be concluded that results comparable to those with patients who do not suffer from osteoporosis can be reached. Osseointegration, implant survival rate, marginal bone loss and mucosal parameters do not behave differently than they do in the healthy group of patients.
