An implant-supported restoration offers a predictable treatment for tooth replacement. Reported success rates for dental implants are high. Nevertheless, failures that mandate immediate implant removal do occur. The consequences of implant removal jeopardize the clinician's efforts to accomplish satisfactory function and esthetics. For the patient, this usually involves further cost and additional procedures. The main objective of this paper is to describe different failures in dental implants and treatment modalities to deal with implant failure. The main topics for discussion include identifying the failing implant, management of implant failures and higher stress on the implant maintainance methods. This article describes the many failures and complications that can occur when using implants to support restorations. Most of these failures can be prevented with proper patient selection and treatment planning
