Implant Removal: Indications and Surgical Techniques

Waldemar Daudt Polido

Dental implant placement has become a widely accepted treatment approach and has revolutionized dentistry in the last few decades. Although implants have high survival and success rates, they are not immune to complications. Implant failure can have various etiologies such as malposition, damage of the implant or prosthetic components, infection, advanced peri-implantitis, and damage of the adjacent anatomical structures. As a consequence, implant removal has unfortunately become more and more common. Bone and soft tissue reconstruction following implant removal are almost always necessary. This lecture discusses minimally invasive techniques for implant removal to preserve bone and soft tissues.
