Failure of periodontal treatment
Treatment failures appear to occur more frequently in periodontology than in other dental disciplines. Inappropraite patient selection, incomplete diagnostic procedures, errors in diagnosis or prognosis, treatment difficulties, unsupervised healing, and the absence of maintenance therapy may be causes of such failures. A regular recall program can largely prevent such failures.
