After nearly three decades of widespread application, implant-prosthetic therapy has been proved to be effective and safe. However, implant treatment modalities cannot be considered entirely free of complications, and there remains a need to reduce the clinical incidence of avoidable errors. Although rare and usually minor, complications in implant dentistry require tested management protocols. The authors detail common complications through clinical case examples and explain the best strategies to optimize treatment outcomes. This practical reference book serves as a guide for diagnosis and treatment of complications and also, more importantly, provides a code of conduct and a philosophy for how to approach complications.
