Osseointegrated implants fail for a number of reasons. Failures should be classified based on when in the sequence of therapy they occur. The two stages of therapy to consider when analyzing the causes of failure are the periods before and after loading the implant. Causes for failure during these time periods are discussed, as well as ways to avoid them.
