Background and aim: According to the study of patient's complaints about dental treatments and also, the fact that patients' complaints have been less about dental implant treatment, this study aimed to investigate the dental complaints in implants treatment and related factors during 2016-2018.  
Materials and methods: This study was conducted with the descriptive method. The relevant permissions was obtained after referring to the forensic medical commission of Tehran. The files of all the dentists were evaluated during 2016 until 2018. Then, those related files to the complaints about tooth implantation services were separated. The patient relevant factors were evaluated and documented such as age, gender and the reason of complaint, as well as dentist related factors including age, gender. Afterwards, the judgements of the commission were determined including exoneration or obvious negligence and the frequency of each judgement in the samples. The real judgement frequency (CI) was estimated and the role of relevant factors was statically determined using the Chi Square Test.
Results: According to the evaluated data, amongst all dental services complainers were related to the tooth implantation services (one-third (1/3) or 30 % of the files) during 2016-2018 that it included; inappropriate implant installation (58%), damage to the implant surrounding tissue (29 %), high service costs (6 % ) and other problems (7 %). In these files, the complainers were related to 50 % women and 50 % men and also, the dentists were 9% women and 91% men. The judgements of forensic medical commission were exoneration 45 % and negligence 55%.
Conclusion: It seems that this rate of failure in implant services was high and especially for non-specialized dentists. The results of this study suggest necessary actions to reduce the problem.
