Identifying Factors Associated with Peri-implant Bone Loss

Saturday, June 10th, 2017
Presented by: Dr. Paul Rosen


The cause(s) of bone loss around dental implants evokes many disparate views and unfortunately since the 6th European Workshop on Periodontics held in 2007, no update has been made to the original list leading to confusion and debate as to what may be relevant. This lecture will highlight some of these emerging areas of concern and discuss potential strategies to mitigate this problem.


• Discuss the original list of factors enumerated by the 6th European Workshop on what causes pathologic bone loss around dental implants.

• Identify what original factors may no longer hold validity.

• List what emerging factors have evidence to support their addition to this list.
