Ease of taking out implants?

Hello all. My mother has an implant at #17, - does anyone know if it is easy to take out an implant? I read this online . I'd like to also know what are some complications anyone could share. Thank you!

It is possible to remove many types of root-form implants in a few minutes using devices that lock into the implant. These devices deliver torque considerably greater than that needed to break the osseo-integration interface i.e. up to and exceeding 400Ncm. This avoids the need (generally) to cut away bone and the process leaves a neat ‘socket’ after removal that requires little additional treatment
