Abstract: With dental implants becoming a more common treatment option for the replacement of missing teeth, and with survival rates upwards of 90% after 10 years, it is likely that primary care dentists and dental care professionals will encounter patients presenting with problems. The second article in this two-article series outlines common biological and mechanical complications arising with dental implants and their component parts, and how to manage them.

Clinical relevance: This article highlights important aspects the primary care practitioner should consider when examining and maintaining dental implants, and provides an overview of common biological and mechanical complications associated with implant-retained restorations.
