Risks. Failures. Gifts of learning. 

Risks. Failures. Gifts of learning. The German Association of Oral Implantology addresses a new perspective on risks, errors and failures.

 DGI's annual congress 2024 will be held from 28 to 30 November 2024 in Dresden (in German language).


Surgical intervention or prosthetic restoration – every procedure in implantology harbours risks. Complications and failures can therefore never be ruled out. It is important to avoid failure. But if it does occur, it is helpful to change the perspective. Complications and failures can be an opportunity to learn.
