Complication or substandard care? Risks of inadequate implant training.

Author information

Institute for Dental Implant Awareness, Santa Monica, Calif 90401, USA.


The use of dental implants has increased substantially over the past decade, as have the number of implant-related complications. One of the contributing factors is inadequate training in the prevention, recognition, and treatment of complications. Comprehensive training on implant surgical procedures that includes patient selection, risk management, and complications allows dentists to incorporate implant placement into their practices with less risk to patients and less risk of serious legal consequences.
