Dental implants and antibiotics

Dental implants have a high success rate in replacing missing teeth and are becoming increasingly popular. Antibiotics are often prescribed as a matter of course to prevent infection; however, antimicrobial resistance poses a concern.

Key takeaways:

– Antibiotic use should be used by people more prone to infection such as diabetics and smokers.

– Antibiotics should only be used for bacterial infections, not for viral or fungal infections.

– Your dentist can reassure any concerns you have about dental implants and antibiotic resistance.

“Adhering to proper antimicrobial stewardship is essential to ensure minimization of antibiotic resistance”
