A retrospective study on 1592 consecutively performed operations in one private referral clinic. Part I: Early inflammation and early implant failures
Authors: Hadi Antoun et al.
Implant treatment can be divided into two major phases where the first phase is to establish a firm and stable osseointegration of the installed implant followed by the second phase where the aim is to maintain osseointegration, implant stability, and tissue health over time during follow-up. Implant failures during the first phase is observed as lose implants which are interpreted to never have integrated and the time interval for these “early failures” are recorded from implant surgery up to a period of implant function.
