Implant-induced decay: A problem bigger than you think

Although dental implants have a high survival rate, complications can occur. One of those is the migration of natural teeth adjacent to an ankylosed implant, causing interproximal contact loss (ICL) or an open contact. Because ICL between a dental implant restoration and an adjacent tooth has been highly correlated with the development of dental caries, clinicians and dental teams must be aware of these four factors that contribute to implant-induced tooth decay and predispose patients to open contacts. Otherwise, vulnerable patients could be missing out on valuable screening and preventive measures.
