Dental implants were introduced in the United States almost 40 years ago. Originally, Branemark would only offer the course to oral surgeons and then opened it to periodontists. However, today any one with a dental license can place implants. It is even part of the curriculum for endodontists and prosthodontists. While many dental implant reps will tell you there is a 95% success, which also equates to 1 failure out of 20 implants, the truth is that they do fail or do not initially integrate. Patient management is crucial when placing implants. The procedure is expensive and how we deal with the complications is critical in avoiding those poor YELP reviews. With more implants being placed each year, is not surprising there are more failures. However, if we can recognize an “ailing” implant and institute treatment, we can possibly retain that implant.
