Dental implants are highly predictable when treatment protocols are followed. Peri-implantitis is a disease that threatens implant survival long-term. For clinicians, there is no clear consensus on how to prevent and treat this fast-growing problem. This presentation will provide an overview of the diagnosis of peri-implant disease and treatment considerations. The decision tree for different treatment modalities will be highlighted, including different prosthetic treatment options including CAD/CAM restorations to optimize plaque control and maintain health around implant-supported restorations.
Recognize and diagnose peri-implantitis
Identify the risk factors for implant disease
Demonstrate different surgical approaches including regenerative therapy for treating peri-implantitis and discuss different prosthetic concepts and CAD/CAM abutment designs to control and prevent peri-implantitis to maintain long-term peri-implant health
