Possible Complications of dental implants

When we talk about criteria for the success of dental implants, today we know that in expert hands the long-term success rate exceeds 95%. Logically, this success rate is achieved by correctly selecting the patient. However, a small percentage of failures does exist even when all of the protocols are rigorously followed.
These failures are not due to "rejection" since this does not exist as such when implants of proven quality are placed.

Early failures:

As this is a process in expert hands, the long-term success rate of dental implants is 95%. Logically, this success rate is achieved by correctly selecting the patient. However, a small percentage of failures does exist even when all of the protocols are rigorously followed.

Late failures:

Remember that these problems are not due to "rejection" as this does not occur when quality implants are fitted.

Failures can be divided into early failures and late ones. The causes related to them are explained as follows.

Early failures occur in the first few months before fitting the prostheses, and can be due to inadequate bone quality; in fact, more failures occur in the upper jaw than in the lower jaw because the bone tends to be spongier, less compact and of poorer queality in general.
