Implants do not fail
a well experienced doctor, can give you good layout.but yes, implants can be placed sooner or later, it does not matter if they fail. they can be re done.
Multiple implant failures
Dental implant treatment carries with it a very high success rate, this does not mean that we always have successful implants but the chances of multiple failures is very low.
There are however a few causes for failure that need to be explored:
1) Mechanical local factors such as overload of the implants from chewing while they are healing or grinding.
2) Biological local factors such as poor bone quality at implant site, bacterial infections, inability to maintain a clean environment
3) Systemic factors such as your overall health, smoking habits, cholesterol levels, vitamin D deficiency, autoimmune disease, metabolic diseases etc.
If you had implants placed by a competent surgeon and they fail you need to ask yourself which of these factors are playing a roll, rather the surgeon should be asking and exploring and trying to setup for success.
Hope this helps.
