Local and Systemic Risk Factors for Implant Therapy

Identification and evaluation of risk factors and contraindications are important aspects of providing implant therapy. By definition, risk factors are variables associated with an increased possibility of adverse events and complications, and they can be divided into systemic and local factors. Contraindications represent reasons why treatment may be inadvisable and may be either relative or absolute. Risk factors and contraindications for implant therapy will be addressed in this Learning Pathway through a dedicated Learning Module. This is supported by discussion of systemic and local risk factors in an additional Learning Module, Lectures, and Consensus Statements together with a Clinical Case example.

On completion of this Learning Pathway you should be able to...

  • define the terms risk factors and contraindications as they relate to implant dentistry
  • identify local and systemic risk factors associated with implant therapy
  • indicate relative versus absolute contraindications for implant therapy
