Abstract

Studies investigating whether osteoporosis is arisk factor for using implants have revealed no correlation between possible implant failure and the severity of osteoporosis. However, osteoporotic patientsfrequently require bone regeneration techniques, because they do not fulfil optimum conditions for implant placement owing to the dimished bone structure and rapid resorption and rapid resorption of the alveolar bone. We present a succesful case of advanced implant therapy using platelet-rich plasma in a patient with severe osteoporosis who had been previously treated with bisphosphonates. We are not aware that this technique has been previously described in literature.
