Dental implants are routinely used to treat edentulism. Their success depends on osseointegration, the direct functional and structural interlocking of implant and bone. The osseointegration mechanism is similar to bone remodeling and healing. Thus, chronic use of systemic medications that can interfere with bone turnover and healing may affect osseointegration, resulting in premature implant loss. The aim of this narrative review is to analyze the reported effects of systemic medications on osseointegration.
