Placement of dental implants in the maxillofacial region is routine and considered safe. However, as with any surgical procedure, complications occur. Many issues that arise at surgery can be traced to the preoperative evaluation of the patient and assessment of the underlying anatomy. In this article, the authors review some common and uncommon complications that can occur during and shortly after implant placement. The emphasis of each section is on the management and prevention of complications that may occur during implant placement.
