Center for the Treatment of Dental Implant Complications


Dental Implants are highly successful with over 90% survival rate. However, complications may occur which may endanger the implant or restoration. These complications may include:

  • Inflammation of the tissue surrounding the implant
  • Peri-implantitis and bone loss around the implant
  • Fracture of the restorative materials
  • Poor positioning of the implant
  • Esthetic problems
  • Phonetic problems
  • Loosening of the implant crown

If these problems are not treated implant failure may result with loss of the implant, crown, and bone around the implant. Inflammation around an implant may also endanger overall systemic health of the body. The treatment of these complications requires experience and knowledge of successful treatment techniques. Dr. Stuart J Froum is the editor of the book Dental Implant Complications, Etiology, Prevention, and Treatment (first (2010) and second edition (2016)) which in many dental schools and private practices is the” go to” guide for proper treatment of dental implant complications. Dr. Stuart J Froum specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of all types of implant problems.
