This course will cover surgical treatment plans for peri-implantitis. Peri-implantitis is a bacterial infection of peri-implant supporting tissues, characterized by the loss of supporting bone. Early interception in peri-implantitis is a crucial factor that can improve treatment prognosis. The correct diagnosis will facilitate pre-operative selection of appropriate techniques for the maintenance of peri-implant tissue health. It is necessary to reconstruct the lost periodontal tissues even if the process of re-osseointegration is not currently considered predictable. Several peri-implantitis cases with long term survival follow up, strategies, clinical protocol and treatment techniques for treatment will be presented.
- Describe surgical approaches based on peri-implantitis defects.
- Discuss combined resective and regenerative therapies.
- Discuss bone expected clinical outcome after the peri-implantitis treatment.
