Dental Implants Biological Complications: Tooth Preservation Reevaluated

A common dilemma encountered by dental practitioners is the decision whether to extract a compromised natural tooth and replace it with a dental implant, or to attempt preservation of the natural tooth by endodontic periodontal and restorative treatments. This intriguing dilemma has been extensively debated over the years, shifting back and forth. Nevertheless, recent publications revealed that compared to natural teeth, dental implants are more susceptible to complications, and may require additional treatments to maintain them following their placement. This complex decision requires both periodontal endodontic and restorative considerations. This chapter reviews the capabilities offered by modern dentistry to retain the natural dentition considering especially dental implants biological complications and their subsequent effects on clinical decision-making.
