Multidisciplinary Treatment Solutions
for Peri-Implantitis Symposium

Managing Peri-Implant Disease From a
Laser Perspective

Saturday, June 10th, 2017
Presented by: Dr. Sam Low

Learning Objectives:

With the increase incidence in peri-implant disease, several systematic approaches have been introduced to managing inflammatory implant conditions from mechanical/chemical disinfection to laser decontamination. However, studies have been inconclusive as to consistent results and some even suggesting adverse events with certain respective laser wavelengths.

Protocols including open flap surgery with augmentation will be contrasted to closed/open flap laser procedures. Data will be presented to demonstrate positive and adverse events of laser effects on various implant surfaces considering thermal effects. Innovative laser delivery will be considered to provide a minimally invasive approach.
