A retrospective review of implant treatment outcomes placed between 2009 and 2018 by the graduate periodontics residents at the University of British Columbia, Dental Clinic Almarzouki, Fatima


Objectives: This study was conducted to examine the rates and potential predictors of implant failures and peri-implant condition associated with treatments provided by the periodontal residents at the graduate dental clinic at the University of British Columbia (UBC). Materials and methods: A retrospective review of information from dental charts of patients who received dental implants at the UBC graduate clinic between January 1st, 2009, and December 31st, 2018, by the graduate periodontics residents. Results: During the review period, 597 patients received a total of 1494 dental implants. The majority of potential risk indicators we examined did not have statistically significant associations with either implant failures or peri-implant condition. Conclusion: The implant failure rate was lower than the failure rate reported in a previous retrospective study done in the same university setting. To ensure the proper documentation of all cases, the standardized protocol for information recording, including follow-ups, should be implemented.
