As the number of implants that have been placed worldwide increases and as the number of years
implants have been in place increases, the incidence and prevalence of inflammatory peri-implant disease
has been rising. Because of this, it’s imperative all practitioners have an understanding of the factors involved in the initiation of peri-implant disease, are able to diagnose the problem in its incipiency, and can then take the proper steps to arrest its progression.
At the end of this presentation, the participant will:
1) have an understanding of the etiology, microbiology and histopathology of peri-implant disease, and its progression from mucositis to peri-implantitis.
2) understand which instruments and chemical agents are best suited to debride, detoxify and decontaminate an affected implant.
3) understand the indications for non-surgical and surgical therapy, and the specific implant surgical techniques utilized to optimize the results of treatment.
4) know how to establish an evidenced based in office and at home theraputic regimen for the early recognition and diagnosis of peri-implant disease as well institute Cumulative Interceptive Supportive Therapy (CIST) to stop mucositis before it progresses to peri-implantitis.
