Today, the success rate in implant applications is 90-100%, in order to achieve this success; In clinics where implant surgery will be performed, sterile conditions must be provided and aseptic and atraumatic operation techniques must be adhered to. In addition, a quality implant system should be selected and the procedure recommended by this system should be followed.

However, some drugs, which are used especially in some heart diseases and prevent blood clotting, are not preferred because they will cause excessive bleeding during implant placement. It is appropriate for people with diabetes, some rheumatic diseases and heart diseases to use this type of drugs, or who are under control, to consult their dentist with their dentist before the operation.
