An association between vitamin D deficiency and early dental implant failure is not properly verified, but its role in osteoimmunology is discussed. This article illustrates two case reports with vitamin D deficiency and early implant failure. Prior to implant placement, the first patient received crestal bone grafting with autologous material. Both patients received dental implants from different manufacturers in the molar region of the mandible. In the case of bone grafting in the first patient, all implants were placed in a two-stage procedure. All implants had to be removed within 15 days after implant placement. Vitamin D serum levels were measured: Both patients showed a vitamin D deficiency (serum vitamin D level <20 affirm="" after="" and="" between="" both="" clinical="" d="" deficiency="" early="" failure.="" follow="" g="" implant="" in="" l="" must="" nbsp="" osteoimmunology="" p="" patients.="" placement="" prospective="" randomized="" relationship="" successful="" supplementation="" the="" to="" trials="" vitamin="" was="">
