A lecture on complications and unforeseen outcomes that gives you food for thought on when and which patients we can treat with confidence and when we should refer or even consider not to do implants. 

Today we face a huge amount of implant brands and commercials telling us that dental implants are a safe, quick and everlasting treatment, but is that really the truth?

In this lecture you will get an insight in the most common risks and complications in modern implantology. You will see examples of treatments gone wrong and what could have been done to avoid it, but also some tips and results on treatments that worked out fine.

Learning Objectives:

  • To be able to recognise ideal patients for implants
  • To be able to spot the difficult ones, in order to refer them for proper treatment
  • To get an overview of some of the biggest implant brands and learn about the weakest link
  • To get an insight into mucositis and peri-implantitis and other defects and how they are treated
