Implants have gained tremendous popularity in modern dental practice and their placement in the edentulous region for the prosthetic reconstruction has become routine. Four essential steps in the use of dental implants, are careful selection of the patient, correct choice of the implant, proper surgical technique and precise prosthetic replacement. The operator's knowledge and skills have a significant role in each of these steps and each step is as important as others. Neglect in any one can result in iatrogenically induced damage. This article describes some of the commonly occurring iatrogenically induced complications during implant surgery and provides some guidelines to prevent the same.
