The development of the concepts and practice of osseointegration has created a quiet revolution in dentistry with favorable practical results. Concepts of osseointegration as they were defined by P.I. Brånemark evolve through major changes regarding the material, design, and surface characteristics. Together with the high rate of success of dental implants, and with their growing use in the last few decades, comes an increased incidence of complications. However, there is no consensus for the management of complications. We know what is needed or what should be avoided. The objective is just, with clinical cases, to unravel in a rigorous scientific reasoning, different ways of complications management, without forgetting patient’s psychological approach and that patient’s satisfaction and function is the prime achievement of osseointegration.
