Abstract

Although osseointegrated dental implants have become a predictable and effective modality for the treatment of single or multiple missing teeth, their use is associated with clinical complications. Such complications can be biologic, technical, mechanical, or esthetic and may compromise implant outcomes to various degrees. This article presents prosthetic complications accompanied with implant-supported single and partial fixed dental prostheses.

KEYWORDS:

Partial fixed dental prosthesis; Prosthetic complication; Prosthetic failure; Single implant restoration
