Background:Dental implants have become a valuable alternative to dental prostheses supported by remaining teeth or adjacent oral soft tissues. The present study was conducted to assess prosthetic complications of dental implants.
Materials & Methods: The present retrospective study was conducted on 87 patients who received 120 dental implants of both genders. Type of complications was recorded in all.
Results: Out of 87 patients, males were 40 and females were 47. Age group 18-28 years had 5 males with 8 implants, 6 females with 10 implants, age group 28-38 years had 12 males with 18 implants and 14 females with 21 implants, 38-48 years had 13 males with 7 implants and 12 females with 17 implants, >48 years had 10 males with 13 implants and 15 females with 16 implants. The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05). Prosthetic complications were ceramic veneer fracture in 4 cases, prosthesis screw loosening in 3, prosthesis debonding in 2 cases, abutment loosening in 8 cases and abutment fracture in 1 case. The difference was significant (P< 0.05).
Conclusion: Authors found that common complications were ceramic veneer fracture, abutment loosening, abutment fracture, prosthesis screw loosening and prosthesis debonding
