Implants dentaires et radiothérapie

Published in Revue médicale suisse. 2009, vol. 5, no. 219, p. 1936-9
Abstract Dental implants on irradiated and often grafted bone, in patients previously treated for head and neck cancer is a controversial issue. For some specialists, particularly in North-America they constitute a formal contra indication. However, a review of 21 studies reported mainly by European specialists argues that these implants can be done with an acceptable rate of complications, confirming our clinical observation. Patients have reported significant improvements in their quality of life after dental implantation.
