Dental implants have become the standard of care for many situations in which tooth replacement becomes necessary. Indications include single tooth replacement, fixed partial dentures, as well as implant assisted full arch rehabilitation. In spite of the fact that dental implants enjoy a remarkably high success rate when used appropriately, implant failure is still a reality that practitioners must deal with.

Practitioners must be aware of the warning signs of an ailing and failing implant and how to diagnose and treat in its early stages, which is clearly more desirable.? ?
