Surgical Regenerative Therapy of Peri-Implantitis

Saturday, June 10th, 2017
Presented by: Prof. Dr. Frank Schwarz

Abstract:

Previous studies have indicated that surgical treatment of peri-implantitis with concomitant placement of a bone filler is associated with clinical and radiographic improvements on both short- and long-term periods. However, the available evidence also suggests, that the effectiveness of regenerative treatment approaches is influenced by several factors, such as the type and configuration of the defect, implant surface characteristics, as well as the method of surface decontamination.

• Surgical techniques and materials for regenerative therapy of peri-implantitis associated defects

• Decontamination protocols

• Combination procedures for advanced defects (resective/regenerative)

• Soft tissue volume grafting for the prevention of postoperative mucosal recessions

• Indication-based flap and suturing techniques
