S2EP14: How to Prevent Dental Implant Failure
In the last couple of weeks, I’ve seen multiple cases of dental implant failure, all of which were entirely preventable.
So, what’s behind these failures?
What can we do to identify and treat implant failures? And prevent similar problems moving forward?
On this episode of Dentist Brian Candy, I share several cases of implant failure that have come through my office recently, explaining how dental labs are compromising the health of patients in the interest of price savings.
I discuss why It’s problematic to use non-authentic components in dental implants and challenge restorative dentists to insist that laboratories use authentic parts.
Listen in for insight on identifying open contacts and occlusal overload and learn to address these issues before they lead to catastrophic bone loss and implant failure in the patients you serve.
