Course Overview


The number of implants suffering from peri-implant disease is increasing. Dental professionals frequently have questions concerning the etiology and treatment of these problems. During this presentation, we will cover new data on these topics, including the role of foreign bodies including cement and titanium found in soft tissues surrounding implants affected by these diseases. We will also discuss the effect of early and late colonizing bacteria on the implant surfaces and their role in the production of these foreign bodies. Additionally, learn about the new therapeutic modalities, which includes the appropriate methods for removing biofilm from infected implant surfaces and how these approaches may or may not result in new attachments to implant surfaces previously covered with biofilm.


At the completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Assess new concepts in treating peri-implant diseases
  • Determine the role of cement in these processes and how to ameliorate the problem
  • Identify the possible role of titanium particles in the etiology of these diseases.
