Course description:

Implant treatment is becoming very common in general dental practices and patients are demanding it. With the increase in implant treatment, an increase in failure and complication is also evident. Early detection of complications that are amenable to rescue therapies may reverse the fate of a failing implant or a bone-grafting procedure. This program will present the diagnosis, management, and prevention of surgery-related complications in implant dentistry as well as the most frequent prosthetic-related complications in a practical and clinically relevant manner for the general dentist.


  • Learn a comprehensive protocol that allows for the early detection of potential implant surgical complications and how to avoid them
  • Know how to manage implant complications in an emergency setting
  • Learn an implant treatment protocol from the initial consultation and treatment planning through the restorative phase

Some of the prevention and management topics to be discussed:

  • Overheating the bone during drilling
  • Stripping the implant site
  • Compression necrosis
  • Bleeding
  • Incision line reopening
  • Tissue emphysema induced by dental procedures
  • Unstable implants
  • Mandibular bone fracture
  • Deep implant placement
  • Nerve injury
  • Sinus floor perforation
  • Nasal floor perforation
  • Curved extraction socket
  • Osteoradionecrosis
  • Incorrect implant angulation
  • Implant-oriented occlusion
  • Inadequate or excessive vertical and horizontal restorative space
