In this article, we performed a study on dental implant placement in patients presenting osteoporosis and we observed the bond between face bones modifications and implant integration. Materials and methods. The study was carried out on 71 patients with osteoporosis, 43 women and 24 men (the sum of female patients with the sum of male patients is not equal with the sum of the study group) with ages between 50-63 years, to whom dental implants were performed. We analyzed the period of time needed for bone tissue healing after performing the implant procedure, and also whether the bone structure type may influence implant’s life. Results and disscusion. In the case of women with osteoporosis, where implant was inserted in thin bone structures, the percentage of implant loss is significantly higher than in men with osteoporosis, as well as in cases in which the implant was performed in thick or compact bone.Conclusions. In women with osteoporosis, failure of an implant performed in dense bone structures is higher than in men. Therefore, these patients may receive dental implants considering a series of factors such as bone structure, age and manifested diseases of the stomatognathic system.
