Serotonin Inhibitors and Risk of Dental Implant Failure

Relationship between Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors and Risk of Dental Implant Failure
To identify associations between implant failure and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) medication use in a cohort of consecutive patients receiving dental implants during a 20‐year period.
In the population reviewed, a history of sertraline use was associated with a 60% greater risk of implant failure; however, active SSRI use at the time of implant placement or during follow‐up was not significantly associated with an increased risk of implant failure.
