Abstract :

Background: Due to the fact that osseointegration is contingent on bone metabolism, low vitamin D levels in the blood may have an unfavourable impact on bone development around dental implants. Only a few researches have looked into the probable link between vitamin D levels in the blood and early dental implant failure (EDIF), which happens within three months of placement well before the prosthetic abutment is engaged. The goal of this study was to see if there is a association between low vitamin D levels in the blood and EDIF. Materials and Methods: This prospective study was conducted among the total of 100 patients within the age group 18-55 years who fulfilled the inclusion & exclusion criteria of the study. These subjects were selected from the patients who visited the outpatient department of Himachal Dental College, Sundernagar. Clinical parameters were assessed at 3 month post-operatively and implant failures were assessed and correlated with the levels of serum vitamin D. Results: In our study, 6, 71 and 23 subjects were 30 ng/ml vitamin D serum levels respectively. One (1) incidence of failure was reported in patients with high serum levels of vitamin D (>30 ng/mL) (4.3%). Failed implants were revealed maximum among subjects with vitamin D level Conclusion: The relation between serum Vitamin D levels and early dental implant failure is statistically insignificant. More clinical trials with a prospective design and appropriate statistical analysis are needed, to confirm whether or not a relation between low serum levels of vitamin D and an increased rate of early dental implant failure exists.
