Multidisciplinary Treatment Solutions
for Peri-Implantitis Symposium

A Regenerative Algorithm for the Treatment
of Peri-Implantitis

Saturday, June 10th, 2017
Presented by: Dr. Stuart Froum

Abstract:

Peri-implantitis has been conservatively estimated to effect 10% of implants in 20% of patients in a 5-10 year period following implant placement. Yet over 10 thorough systematic literature reviews of treatment have concluded that no treatment appears to be predictable and successful. This presentation will present an evidence based regenerative treatment that has demonstrated high rates of success in treating peri-implantitis and restoring lost hard and soft peri-implant tissue. An 8 step regenerative protocol will be presented in detail which has demonstrated predictably high success rates in the treatment of peri-implantitis

Goals:

• Identify the essential factors for a successful regenerative approach to treatment of peri-implantitis

• Discuss the evidence for each step of the protocol

• Present cases demonstrating the technique and results of this specific protoc
