A protocol for follow-up visits post-implant placement
Although the high predictability and long-term success rate of dental implants is well documented in the literature, complications and failures can occur. Proportional to the increase in the volume of dental implants being placed is the number of adverse events that will occur. Some complications may be relatively minor and easy to correct, while others will be major and result in the loss of the implant or prosthesis. Implant complications and failures are most likely to occur within the first year of placement of the dental implant fixture and delivery of the final prosthesis, with some studies suggesting complete implant failure ranging from 3 to 8 percent.
