catastrophic failure or just another day in the office ?

Posted on By Nicholas Albanese In Failures

I recently inherited this case from another dentist. "Bilateral" lateral incisor implant failures ( other side looks just the same ) on a 30 yr old healthy male. Implants are aproximately 7 yrs old. All adjacent teeth are mobile. Implant crowns are in light contact.
Any thoughts about the etiologies here so I don't repeat the same mistakes that another dentist made ?

The implant was placed well under the CEJ of the adjacent teeth, so that means the pt had bone loss, and probably deep pockets. The implant was placed but the periodontal disease has never been addressed adequately that has caused the failing of the the teeth and implant.
