Implants work almost 100% of the time, yet in reviewing the last 6 months of topics on the podium, those webinared and in the literature, the concerns are about trouble shooting, peri-implantitis and peri-mucositis. Below are two articles from the endodontic literature demonstrating how intense the critique truly is in terms of outcomes studies and one that – well you be the judge.  Over the next few months, I’d like to spend time reviewing meta-analyses of all the new technology hitting the marketplace, those that fly and those that crash land……..only time will tell..
