Introduction. In modern dentistry the oral rehabilitation of patients with the help of dental implants has a very high success rate. However, the problem is the situation of patients with serious chronic diseases in which the insertion of dental implants is problematic or dental procedures can complicate or aggravate the patients’ disease.
Case report. We presented the case of a patient with associated chronic diseases who benefited from the insertion of implants with a nanostructured surface. The nanotube surface of the dental implant has been loaded with anti-inflammatory drugs to promote healing and stimulate the process of osteogenesis.
Conclusions. Within the limitations of this study, we consider the therapy with avant-garde nanostructured dental implants to represent a viable treatment option for patients with a medical history with complicated chronic diseases.
