Dental Implant Problems and Complications

While dental implants have a long term high success rate, an average of 10% to 20% of dental implants suffer from various complications. One of the most commonly seen dental implant complications is bone loss around dental implants called peri-implantitis. There are many different treatment options for peri-implant diseases and one of the most successful modalities is guided bone regeneration (adding bone and membrane to the ailing implants). Other treatment options include laser therapy and local delivery of an antibiotic. Drs. Barber and Ho have rescued many ailing implants and has saved his patients from losing their implant restorations.
