Dental Implant Failures and Bruxism
Posted on 7/27/2020 by Greg Kammeyer
The latest research has suggested dental implant placements in patients diagnosed with bruxism have higher failure rates. The study performed was to investigate the link between bruxism and the risk of dental implant failure. In this study it was based on 2,670 patients who received 10,096 implants at one specialist clinic. The survival analysis was used to evaluate the link between bruxism and probability of the implant failing. Indication from an international consensus, J. Oral Rehabil and from the International Classification of Sleep Disorders were used to identify the condition. The total of implants with information available for all variables were 3,549, placed in 994 patients. The failure rates for the implants were high at 13.0% (24/185) for bruxers and 4.6% (155/3,364) for nonbruxers, showing that bruxism was a significant risk factor to implant failure as well as implant length, diameter, surface, bone quantity D in relation to quantity A, bone quality 4 in relation to quality 1, smoking and the intake of proton pump inhibitors.
