In brief: Should not affect

Oral contraception or hormone replacement therapy will not prevent you from getting a dental implant.
If you are unsure check with your physician. Uncontrolled diabetes, smoking and bone-density drugs are often red flags that should be discussed with the surgeon placing the dental implant.

Please be aware that there is a potential interaction between your BCP's and antibiotics that you may need to take. Antibiotics may interfere with the effectiveness of BCP's.

In brief: No

There is no relation between birth control pills and a dental implant.
Assuming you have no serious medical issues, you can go ahead and have dental implant treatment. Good luck.

In brief: Absolutely NOT

The only medication that would cause any concern in placing dental implant is the bisphosphonates, drugs prescribed for osteoporosis, which interfere with bone remodeling and healing.
In this case, patient must stop medicine for 3 months prior to place dental implant. The only caution on the contraceptive medication is that a birth control pill may not work when the patient is on antibiotics.

In brief: Nope

Not at all, however, the effectiveness of your birth control pills will decline with antibiotic use.
