Prevent Peri-implantitis and Plan for Long-Term Success

Saturday, June 10th, 2017
Presented by: Dr. Myron Nevins

Abstract:

Peri-implantitis is an uninvited challenge to implant treatment planning that occurs in 10-25% of implants. It is a significant setback for the surgeon, the restorative dentist, and most importantly the patient. This lecture will investigate diagnostics for implant treatment planning aimed at protecting the soft and hard tissues surrounding the implant fixture.

Regardless of which side of the etiologic debate as to inflammation or excess force, it would be logical to eliminate all periodontitis in the mouth before placing implants. It should be considered omnipotent to provide a maintenance program for each patient featuring oral hygiene to achieve long-term health of both teeth and implants. This presentation will identify decisions that address these issues, especially for periodontally compromised patients
