Periodontal And Implant Decision Making: From Treating The Ailing Tooth To The Failing Implant (LECTURE & LIVE WEBINAR)

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Understanding implant treatment planning requires both restorative and surgical perspectives. Further complicating implant dentistry are the challenges in treating the ailing implant. Surgically, implants are an obvious choice for edentulous areas, however challenges arise when replacement of questionable teeth with implants are contemplated. Periodontal literature provides insights when maintaining the dentition is possible. However, there are situations where the decision to replace teeth with implants is not very clear. The aim of the course is to explore the multiple facets of implant dentistry including the treatment of ailing implants in order to achieve a broad perspective that will be valuable to surgical and periodontal decision making. Topics will include origins and science behind osseointegration, current trends in peri-implantitis therapy a basic review of surgical procedures typically used for augmentation and implant site preparation, implant success and failure, an understanding of periodontal prognosis of teeth in relation to implant prognosis, and surgical treatment planning of implants. The goal is to combine a broad understanding of the current science behind implants and the treatment of their complications in order to develop a more concise treatment plan that helps navigate the difficult question of when to replace natural teeth with implants, or even when to replace ailing implants.
