Implant Complications

Osseointegrated endosseous dental implants for replacement of lost dentition have been in use for more than 30 years with widely reported success. However, this journey has not been without complications. The increasing numbers of dental implants placed have led to more implant-related complications, which create a challenging and an unpredictable burden for patients and dentists alike. Several attempts have been made to
define the diseases associated with dental implants, and two main entities have emerged: peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis. Peri-implant mucositis is the presence of inflammation in the mucosa at an implant site with no signs of loss of supporting bone beyond the initial physiologic bone remodeling. In addition to inflammation in the mucosa, peri-implantitis is characterized by loss of supporting bone beyond the initial biologic bone remodeling. It’s been reported a peri-implantitis prevalence ranging from 28% to 56% of subjects and 12% to 43% of implant sites, which ultimately leads to a total implant loss of 7.6%. This variation in prevalence could be due largely to the lack of uniformity in criteria used to define peri-implantitis,
as well as to the variables inherent in the diagnosis of disease. Because of the high incidence of peri-implant complications, practitioners have tried several surgical and nonsurgical treatments, concluding that peri-implant mucositis is treatable with nonsurgical therapy; however, peri-implantitis seems to respond better to surgery, but the results are unpredictable. In the absence of a safe and predictable treatment for peri-implantitis, the focus on prevention has become even more important. Several factors influence the incidence of peri-implantitis; patient-based risk indicators include, but are
not limited to, poor-oral hygiene, smoking, alcohol consumption, history of periodontitis, diabetes mellitus, and genetic traits. Factors leading to early implant loss include smoking, history of periodontitis, implant length less than 10 mm, and certain implant surface characteristics, with the last factor being especially relevant to late implant loss. Other determining factors for crestal bone loss and peri-implantitis are implant macrodesign and surface treatments. The toothless patients get successful and reliable implant operations by the dental surgeons at Dental clinics in Turkey. The maintenance of soft tissue contour, characterized by adequate underlying bone, is critical for dental implants placed in esthetically demanding situations. Crestal bone remodeling was once believed to be an inevitable process taking place during the first year of implant loading and continuing gradually at a lower
scale. Investigators have focused on reducing this remodeling. The introduction of platform switching and laser-modified microtexture at the cervical portion of dental implants has addressed this issue. However, studies have shown that in most scenarios in which these two modalities were tested and compared with one another, laser microtexture outperformed platform switching, even in cases involving a thin soft tissue profile. Laser-microtextured implants showed less crestal bone loss after ligature-induced peri-implantitis. They also exhibited higher bone fill when a rescue therapy was performed on all implants. The surgeons at Dental clinics in Istanbul are highly experienced about implant complications and provide reliable implant treatments
with very high percentage of success to the edentulous patients.
