Florid cemento-osseous dysplasia represents one of the few clinical contraindications to osseointegrated implant placement. As in any other surgical procedure, including biopsy, implant placement might open up the doors to bacteria access to the bone environment. Highly sclerosed irregular bone is appropriate for bacteria proliferation and formation of exuberant microbial biofilm, thereby hindering access not only of local cells and molecules of organic defense, but also of antibiotics potentially administered to treat secondary purulent chronic osteomyelitis commonly found in florid cemento-osseous dysplasia patients. The disease is a disorder of the maxilla, established during the process of bone remodeling; and despite its high frequency, its causes or associated factors remain unknown, except for its predominance among afrodescendents, especially middle-aged women.
