Implant Science Research
The mechanisms involved in early implant failure are multifactorial, involving surgeon, implant and patient (SIP) factors. Our key papers that separate out these SIP factors are presented below. Please click on the links to view the abstracts. Those papers that are “Gold Open Access” can be downloaded in full without requiring a journal subscription.
