Abstract

Patients: Dental implant treatment in patients with complicated systemic disease has been discussed, especially in the context of achieving osseointegration. However, some patients with no pre-existing systemic disease develop it later, during their implant maintenance periods. Organ transplants, and the lifelong administration of immunosuppressants that follows, are also of relevance to post-implant oral health. Thus, strategies to maintain the health of peri-implant tissue in these patients should be considered. Here, we present the case of a patient receiving a living-donor lung transplant during her implant follow-up period. The condition of the lung is affected by that of the oral cavity, so the maintenance is of utmost importance. Throughout the follow-up period, we provided periodical professional maintenance care. Discussion and conclusion: The patient experienced no complications, alterations in her radiographic findings, or worsening of periodontal indices, despite being extensively medicated with immunosuppressants, steroids and bisphosphonate.
