Managing Hardware Complications

There is clear evidence that prosthodontic complications occur at a higher rate with dental implants than with natural teeth. Commonly referred to as ‘hardware complications,’ it is important to understand why they occur and how best to deal with them. This Learning Pathway will discuss implant hardware complications associated with fixed dental prostheses as a basis for elucidating their various causes, best prevention, and management. The Learning Pathway comprises a Learning Module, three Lectures, Consensus Statements and Clinical Case examples.

On completion of this Learning Pathway you should be able to...

  • define hardware complications
  • recognize causes of hardware complications
  • outline approaches for the prevention of hardware complications
  • describe management of the most common hardware complications
