One of the things we dread in dentistry is case failure, and we loose sleep and stomach lining worrying about it. Cases fail for a multitude of reasons; some minor while others can be major disasters. The underlying cause can be esthetic, functional, biologic or sometimes behavioral. A large majority of failures can be predicted before a case begins, but we don’t look for the warning signs.
