Dealing with peri-implantitis is depressingly difficult – indeed, there are no good predictable solutions. This presentation will focus on how to make smart decisions during diagnosis and treatment planning and describe sound treatment techniques to dramatically reduce the risk of peri-implantitis. The presentation will cover implant surface and design, screw-retention, cement-retention, and the critical treatment planning decisions that facilitate maintenance of peri-implant bone loss over the lifetime of the patient.
- Describe the risk factors to achieving and perpetuating osseointegration
- Describe the key ingredients for maintaining crestal bone height around dental implants
- Identify common mistakes that lead to peri-implantitis and how to prevent them
