Risks and complications
Every clinician has the same dream: to avoid complications. But the reality is the same for us all. A growing incidence of all kinds of complications (surgical, biological and prosthetic) has been observed. This could be explained by the increased numbers of people seeking implant dentistry, and the growing number of clinicians using sub-optimal protocols.
“Every clinician has the same dream: to avoid complications”
Whatever the cause of this ‘complications overload’, it has two effects which we should bear in mind:
- it is now mandatory for every practitioner to know how to prevent complications and how to handle them if and when they occur
- clinicians must have informed the patient from the very beginning of treatment about potential problems
