Resurrection of an Implant Disaster
THis Patient presented with a main compaint of an infection around an implant. The implant had been replaced twice already as a result of an infection and non integration. Examination reveals the total lack of treatment planning and care as well as total failure on the practitioners part to correctly diagnose the problem and then carry out or refer the case for bone augmentation. This case highlites the need for adequate training before one goes ahead with treatment despite this the practitioner has been placing implants for many years and therefore one has to question the ethics involved in this treatment outcome. A wake up call for all of us.
