Introduction: Osteoporosis according to postmenopausal women is a major health problem increasing yearly. Thus, there is a growing need to assess the success of dental implants among these patients. Aim: Evaluation of dental implants success between 6 and 12 months follow-up on postmenopausal women with osteoporosis by means of clinical and radiographic assessment. Materials and Methods: A total of 30 female patients aged between 46 and 65 years were diagnosed with osteoporosis and treated with Vitamin D3 and Calcium (Vit D3 and Ca). The sample was divided into two groups: Group 1- 15 female patients diagnosed with osteoporosis (bone density of D2) and treated with (Vit D3 and Ca) and group 2- 15 female patients diagnosed with osteoporosis (bone density of D3) and treated with (Vit D3 and Ca). A total of 60 dental implants were placed in the mandibular posterior area. Implant loading was done after 6 months. Follow up intervals were 6 to 12 months after loading. Results: According to the study, compromised survival was in two implants in the osteoporosis group with a bone type of D2 with a rate of 3.3%, and compromised survival in the osteoporosis group with bone type of D3 was 11 implants with a rate of 18.3%. The success was in 52 implants, with a rate of 86.7%. Conclusion: Placing dental implants in postmenopausal female patients with osteoporosis and treating with (Vit D3 and Ca) is a safe treatment option for missing teeth, despite the bone density type. More researches about implant with osteoporosis patients are recommended.
