Conventional dental implants are not recommended for people with diabetes because the implants are placed in soft, spongy bone, which is prone to resorption, which occurs more rapidly in diabetics.
Basal dental implants are the best solution for diabetics. Basal implants are placed in cortical bone, which is much deeper. This is the hard bone of the jaw that is not subject to resorption of gum tissue.
The basal implant is recommended for diabetic patients as long as their diabetes is under control, either with insulin or medication such as Metformin.
Diabetic patients undergoing dental restoration with a basal dental implant should be aware that healing is slower and there is more inflammation of the gums.
