Are “Human Factors” the Primary Cause of Complications in the Field of Implant Dentistry?
Franck Renouard, DDS/René Amalberti, MD, PhD/Erell Renouard

Throughout the years, clinicians have attempted to identify factors that affect the prognosis of dental implants and the prostheses to which the implants are attached. Despite years of investigation, the exact causes of implant failure remain elusive. One factor that is not described with regularity is the effect of adverse events that are experienced by the treatment team and how those events ultimately affect the patient. In this issue of JOMI, the featured article relates to the human factors that may reduce the prognosis of the patients that we treat.
