Implants done right but failing: what happened?

I have a young male patient in good general health. He lost #9, 10 [maxillary left central and lateral incisors; 21, 22] in a traumatic event and had them replaced with two imlants. This was done 16 years prior. The implants were placed perpendicular to the load axis and the crowns were splinted. I can even see some remnants of the resorbed graft material around the exposed implant threads. Not a bruxer,not a clencher,not a grinder and no TMJ issue. Not a smoker, takes no drugs. What happened? Do I try to salvage these implants?
