Can You Have Dental Implants If You Suffer From Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis happens when your body loses bone or doesn't make enough bone to replace cells that normally die off. As a result, you are more likely to suffer from fractures and brittle bones throughout your body, including in your jaw. More than 54 million Americans, including both women and men of all races and ages, suffer from osteoporosis. And many may believe that dental implants are not an option due to their potential loss of bone in the jaw area.
