A weaken immune system can seriously compromise the healing process involved in the success of a dental implant.  If you have a weakened immune system you are more likely to contract an infection and less likely to recover from it.  For these reasons it is not advisable to undergo any unnecessary medical treatment, let alone an invasive one like dental implantation.

Reasons include:

1.  A genetic immunodeficiency- i.e. birth defect

2.  Age- as you get older, your immune system can become weaker

3. Disease- AIDS and cancer can weaken your immune system

4. Transplant- Your immune system can be artificially weakened
