Can an Implant Fail Because I Grind My Teeth?

I recently had an upper rear left dental implant replaced due to loss of integration. The periodontist said that the implant failed because I grind my teeth. She did note that two (2) adjacent teeth looked fine and had no evidence of wear. The implant lasted for 3 years. Is it possible that implant failed because of tooth grinding?
