The survival of implants in suitably selected patients is generally very high.
Implants however do fail and can be lost for a variety of reasons.
Scientific evidence suggests that the longevity of implants may not be superior to that of a diseased but well-restored natural dentition.
A key factor for long-term implant survival is the quality of periodontal and implant maintenance.
Dental implant complications can be divided into two types:
