Kuldeep Pal

Background: Subjects look for tooth substitutes once the tooth is lost with the chief goal that mastication and esthetics are not compromised. Simple choices in prosthodontics for substitution of a missing single tooth include the removable denture,   partial   and   full bridgework,   and   tar   reinforced   bridges. The present study was conducted to determine the incidence of complications and success rate associated with dental implant placement. Materials and methods: The present study was conducted in the retrospective manner in the Department of dentistry during a period of 8 months. The study included subjects between 25- 55 years of age that consented for implant placement. Any complaints or discomfort reported by the subjects was recorded. All the data thus obtained was arranged in a tabulated form and analyzed using SPSS software. Results: The present study enrolled 45 subjects between the age group of 28-55 years. The mean age of the subjects was 34.86+/-2.65 years. There were 33.3% (n=15) cases of mucositis. There were 26.7% (n=12) cases of periimplantitis. There were 6.7%(n=3) cases of ulcer. There were 2.2% (n=1) cases of prosthetic base fracture. Conclusion: The major complications associated with implant placement in our study were mucositis and perimplantitis.
