Implants have proven to be a viable option for replacement of missing teeth
and for retention of both fixed and removable prosthetics. They do, however,
present their own set of challenges. This presentation will address both
surgical and prosthetic failures. Topics will include diagnosis and management
of complications at the time of surgery, failing implants and management of
prosthetic failures. A review of pre-operative planning to minimize failure and
postoperative complications will also be discussed.
