How does alcohol effect dental implants?

1:  Alcohol reduces healing of tissue surrounding dental implants

2:  Affects coagulation of the blood

3:  Heavy use of alcohol could have direct effect on the failure of dental implants, including mouthwash with alcohol as an ingredient.

4:  Tissue around the implants is more inflamed

For the above reasons please be honest with your dentist if you are a heavy user or drinker of alcohol.

 If your alcohol intake is heavy, it is possible that your dentist may opt not do the implant procedure.
