The unique physical, emotional, and developmental characteristics of the person make dental care particularly challenging for the dental implant practitioner. Unfortunately, there is a paucity of literature concerning the use of pharmacologic agents in implant dentistry. This has been attributed largely to the fears and difficulties associated with working with systemic disorder patients. In the literature available, comparison of studies and compilation of information are frequently impossible because of differences in selection criteria, study population, and drug regimens used. Practitioners should use only those drugs in which they have been well trained to avoid excessive risk to the patients. This review aims on the various pharmacological considerations for treating the implant patients with systemic conditions.
