Paul Rosen: Successful treatment of peri-implantitis: advisability and predictability

The presentation reviews the measures and options for treatment of peri-implantitis. Dr Rosen discusses that the etiologies to periodontitis and peri-implantitis share a number of common analogies, and advocates comparable treatment approaches. The initiator isn't always plaque...

Marco Esposito: Light activated disinfection in the case of peri-implantitis

Treatment objective of a chronic disinfection is to reduce bacterial load under a critical threshold. In the case of peri-implant infections the measures to reduce bacterial contamination can comprise e.g. surgical or non-surgical debridement and implant surface decontamination...

Direct to implant vs. abutment

Advantages of abutment-supported prostheses are 1) When implants are not parallel to each other, the use of angulated abutments can "correct" for the non-parallelism 2) Angulated abutments are available for a screw-retained prosthesis and 3) Custom abutments can be...

Soft tissue management

The aims of peri-implant soft tissue management in the edentulous mandible are the eventual reconstruction of attached gingiva or immobilizing the soft tissue at the implant-soft tissue interface. Vestibuloplasty means deepening of the...

Björn Klinge: Is there a connection between previous periodontitis and later peri-implantitis

A consensus statement is an agreement on currently available knowledge and may shift over time based on new evidence. Today there are solid data that there is an association between history of periodontitis and later peri-implant inflammation and infection. However this finding...
