Abstract: Dental implants have become an increasingly prevalent treatment option for the replacement of missing teeth. Multiple studies have reported survival rates for implant supported restorations above 90% after 10 years. However, dental implants are not without complications and with their increasing placement, it is more likely that primary care dentists and dental care professionals will encounter patients presenting with problems. The first article in this two-part series provides an overview of implant components and relevant anatomy, as well as outlining a systematic method of undertaking a clinical and radiographical examination of dental implants.

Clinical relevance: This series highlights important aspects of dental implants and their associated restorations that dental care professionals should consider when examining and maintaining such restorations, as well as providing an overview of associated biological and mechanical complications.

Objective: The reader should feel more comfortable maintaining dental implants in primary care and understand when to refer if complications arise.
