Case Implant rehabilitation in patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has been reported an improvement in the quality of life.
Implanttreatment success depends on many factors like achievement of appropriate osseointegration. There are many controversies
about theinteractions between anti-rheumatic drugs and osseointegration. Moreover, the scientifc evidence regarding implant
survival in RApatients are scarce. This study presents two case reports including 65- and 51-year-old women who have used low-dose
methotrexate andother anti-rheumatic drugs treated by dental implants. After 4-years follow-up, the patients are satisfed of function
and aesthetics. Stablebone level was seen around all implants radiographically. Because of the lack of agreement in implant treatment
protocol in RA patient,more studies are suggested.
Keywords: implant osseointegration, low-dose methotrexate, rheumatoid arthritis
