Organ transplantation along with the immunosuppressive therapy, which has developed in recent years in India, has saved many failing lives, thus restoring and improving the quality and longevity of life. With the known increasing trends in the poor dental health in India it becomes all the more important to be more knowledgeable and treat dental patients with a broader perspective, keeping the complications and precautions prior to and after the transplantation surgeries. The present day's dental surgeons are at the cross roads and so must understand that these organ transplant cases need specialized dental care and their compromised health and immune system place them at an increased risk for systemic as well as oral infections. Thus this article provides a review of the dental implications among the organ transplant patients.
