Abstract: The last 20 years has seen a major development and improvement of the knowledge and techniques applied in the field of implant dentistry.1 We are now seeing a vast improvement in the amount of successfully osseointegrated implants, providing support for various prostheses. However, the case being dealt with in this article was based on a private job done only eight years ago. This displays the importance of not being complacent when choosing your clinicians or practicing the procedures involved, or even the hygienic practices of the patient. Every aspect of the treatment should be controlled to minimize the possibility of implant failure and the catastrophic effect this can have on the bone tissue into which they were placed. This article will follow the clinical and laboratory processes through which the patient must go as a result of implant failure.
