Since implant survival and success are greater than 95% in most short-term studies, long-term maintenance has come to the forefront of implant therapy. Although most clinicians know that maintenance is required after implant therapy, there are no universally accepted schedules, techniques, or guidelines recommended. In the past few years, several consensus conferences have been held and systematic reviews have been written to determine accurate diagnosis, prevalence, prevention, and treatment for peri-implantitis. This course will review current concepts in implant maintenance and peri-implantitis, and present some new concepts in treatment. It will also discuss indications and techniques for implant extraction, and regenerating missing bone.


Learning Objectives:

• Diagnosis and etiology of peri-implantitis
• Risk factors, prevention and treatment of peri-implantitis
• Proper protocols for long-term implant maintenance (hygiene techniques and instruments)
• Step-by-step treatment of peri-implantitis (early and late stage)
• Decontamination and GBR around affected implants
• Procedures and instrumentation for implant removal (resection and reversal techniques)
• Abutment selection and design to minimize incidence of peri-implantitis
• Prosthesis retrieval under difficult circumstances (cemented restorations, stripped screws)

Workshop exercises (on customized plastic models):

• Retrieval of cemented implant crowns and stripped screw
• Decontamination and GBR around the affected implant
• Resection removal of affected implant
• Reversal removal of affected implant (2 techniques)
• Socket treatment and augmentation following implant removal
