What You Need To Know About Dental Implants & Slow Metabolism
Hypothyroidism is a disease that slows your metabolism. When most people think about metabolism they think about how the body burns calories. But metabolism affects more than that, including bone formation around dental implants. However, having slow metabolism or hypothyroidism doesn't mean you can't have dental implants. According to a study published by the National Institutes of Health, the risk of implant failure is not any higher for medically controlled hypothyroid patients than others who do not have the disease.
