Diagnosis, avoidance and management of complications of implant-based treatments
Complications of implant-based treatments
What are the best practices to diagnose, avoid and manage complications of implant-based treatments? To address this, FOR organized a consensus conference comprising a distinguished group of thirteen international scientists and clinicians with varied backgrounds.
The findings of this FOR consensus conference were published in a special issue of the European Journal of Oral Implantology in September 2018. As a FOR user, you have immediate access to the full article completely free of charge.
About the consensus conference
Complications occur regularly when oral endosseous implants are used to carry a dental prosthesis. Although they are often mainly reversible, public opinion has still often associated these implants with failure. But complications should not be designated as failures; rather they should be seen as seeds for progress.
FOR organized a consensus conference comprising a distinguished group of thirteen international scientists and clinicians with varied backgrounds known for their expertise in how to deal with complications. The participants in the consensus were selected on the basis of their contributions in the field, their citation index and their willingness to join without receiving financial compensation.
