Dental researchers currently still debate over whether implants should be performed on women with osteoporosis. They are concerned with the jaw bone foundation to support an implant and the long term outcomes. A new controlled study shows that implants done on women with osteoarthritis had an average 96.5% survival rate, over a 5 year period. Scientists will need to do more studies to confirm these results. This new study outcome does offer some positive evidence that implants may be warranted in women with Osteoporosis.
