Medical History

In implant dentistry, the medical history is one of the most important and revealing aspects of patient evaluation. This is to identify potential medical problems that could prohibit a patient from receiving dental implant treatment.

1. Determine if the patient is currently under the care of a physician.
2. Determine if the patient has a history of rheumatic or congenital heart disease, angina, rheumatic fever, myocardial infarction or arrhythmia.
3. Determine if the patient has a history of diseases of the kidney, urinary tract, GI system, respiratory system, endocrine and nervous system.
4. Determine if the patient has a history of abnormal bleeding tendencies.
5. Determine if the patient has a history of allergies.
6. Determine if the patient is abusing drugs, alcohol or chemical substances.
7. Determine if the patient is under care for psychological problems.
