Proper treatment planning and design of implant restorations can help lessen complications and prevent implant treatment failures. We always talk about the need for team approach with the restorative dentist and the surgeon. But we also need to emphasize the importance of understanding implant complications so that we can optimize our treatment design.
To deliver an acceptable treatment, we should be aware of the problems that may arise from lack of treatment planning. Therefore knowing and understanding the complications will lead us into knowing how to avoid treatment failures.
