Studies indicate that chronic high blood sugar level leads to negative results on bone metabolism, density, mechanical properties, structure and healing, and therefore there is a strong relationship between blood sugar control and bone Osseointegration around dental implants.
Human clinical studies indicate that there is no medical contraindication for dental implants for patients who have a controlled level of sugar, whether through diet or oral hypoglycemic drugs, and those patients who are dependent on insulin should have a cumulative glucose rate under 7% before and during recovery of dental implants to achieve a high success rate,
where osseointegration at the best prospects, and the possibility of complications is very low. The presence of a cumulative sugar level of more than 7% often leads to infection, inflammation and failure of dental implants, and because this medical procedure is an elective procedure,
it is preferable not to do it without obtaining a controlled rate of blood sugar, which may also motivates those who wish to obtain dental implants to achieve better with blood sugar control through diet and exercise. It is always recommended to obtain a prophylactic antibiotic before dental implants in diabetic patients, as studies indicate a decrease in failure rate by 10.5% if the antibiotic is used, and the use of oral antiseptic (chlorhexidine) at the time of the implantation process and during the recovery period reduces the failure rate of the dental implant process from 13.5% to 4.4%.
