Abstract

Peri-Implantitis and Restoration: A New Understanding of the Disease

The incidence of Peri-Implantitis seems to be increasing. Failures as a result of restoration or inadequate maintenance are of concern with implant companies trying to determine if their systems will induce such diseases. Cement manufacturers are also concerned with what is occurring. New implant designs may improve what we do, or do they increase the risks? Working with multiple universities and conducting research, this lecture not only identifies the very latest ideas on the problem, it also delivers solutions in an evidence-based manner. For the surgeon, restoring dentist and hygienist, this is not a lecture to be missed.
