Implant Failures:
Prevention, Identification and Treatment

Share This

Learning Objectives


In a physically healthy patient, regeneration of 6 mm of bone buccally and 3 mm of bone vertically is highly predictable. Implant failure rates, including "failing" immobile implants, should be less than 1 percent after 10 years in function. Achieving such results requires expansion of diagnostic protocols, incorporation of more comprehensive treatment modalities, stricter definitions of regenerative and implant success, an evolved understanding of the impact of implant dimensions, composition and configuration on treatment outcomes, and the utilization of only the finest regenerative, implant and restorative materials. The net result is the creation of a more comprehensive patient - treatment dialectic, the maximization of treatment outcomes and the minimization of patient trauma.

This interactive course will focus on dental implant complications - how to identify them, treat them, and ultimately, prevent them in your practice. The course will be customized to participants. After registering, participants will receive a questionnaire to complete and return prior to the course.

Attendees are encouraged to send us implant cases prior to the course, for group review and discussion. Please contact Michelle at for details regarding case submission. Help make this a truly memorable experience!.
