Dental implant failure rates in patients with self-reported allergy to penicillin

In a number of previous studies, patients with reported penicillin allergies have been documented to experience higher rates of dental implant failure than those who had not reported this allergy. The authors of this study aimed to determine whether an increased risk of implant failure is associated with patient-reported penicillin allergy and which antibiotic was administered.
Significant findings included a lower implant failure rate in patients taking amoxicillin than in patients taking other antibiotics. There was a significant increase in early implant failure in allergy reporting patients.
