According to Faleh Tamimi, DDS, PhD, at McGill University, a new six-year research study shows that people who take SSRIs, like Paxil, Prozac, or Zoloft, have twice the risk of having a dental implant fail as those who don't tak SSRIs. According to the study, SSRIs slow bone-cell production, which reduces bone density. Dental implants need sufficient jawbone density to properly graft. So people with bone density problems such as osteoporosis, whether they have dental implants or not, should be aware of the affect of taking antidepressants.
