Predictability in Peri-Implantitis Treatment

Time: Jun 22, 2024 8:30 AM - 8:55 AM
Speaker: David Kim

Titanium dental implants are considered one of the most preferred and predictable treatment options for patients with missing teeth and occlusal rehabilitation. With the growing number of implants placed each year, implant-related complications are frequently reported. Among them, the prevalence of peri-implantitis is of great concern to all clinicians. To manage peri-implantitis around titanium implants, the non-surgical/surgical approach generally consists of mechanical debridement, antiseptics, local or systemic antibiotics, and resective or regenerative procedures. Various treatment protocols have been proposed to decontaminate the implant surface to facilitate the regeneration of lost peri-implant tissue. This presentation will introduce different approaches to prevent and manage this complication.


Learning Objectives:

1. Review etiology, diagnosis, and treatment options for peri-implantitis

2. Review of the non-surgical and surgical treatment protocols for peri-implantitis

3. Understand the importance of periodontal maintenance for implant patients.
