Description: Loss of osseointegration may present with clinical manifestations such as peri-implant radiolucency, implant mobility and other clinical signs. Timely identification of implant failures is essential, as such failures are a biological and financial burden to the patient, moreover, early identification of implant complications may at times allow the clinician to incorporate preventive strategies to limit the progression of disease to complete loss of osseointegration. When failure of dental implants occurs, there may be prosthetic implications, in other words minor to major modifications to the implant-supported prosthesis may be required. It is therefore important to be acquainted with such management strategies and execute the most appropriate prosthodontic treatment, including the required modifications to the existing prosthetic design.
-Defining implant success and failure and identification of implant failures and complications including multiple implant failures (cluster phenomenon)
-Acquaintance with methods of preventing implant failures and implant related complications
-Review of strategies to manage implant failures, understanding the prosthodontic implications of late implant failures and analyzing possible required modifications to prosthetic designs after late implant failures
