Chandur Wadhwani: How does cementation of implant restorations impact osseointegration?
- Restorative-driven prevention of peri-implant disease
- Cement chemical and hydraulic properties and how they can influence tissue destruction
- Biologics around implants - give the bone the chance to survive. General session.
- Nobel Biocare New York Global Symposium 2016
What do we know about cement? How it flows, excess amounts, and hydraulic forces of cement can lead to both hard and soft tissue destruction. Furthermore, how should we mitigate the risks of using cement?
This presentation will discuss why residual cement is considered a risk factor for complications and a variety of issues will be covered including microbiology, immunology, allergic response, and activation of the titanium surface. Restorative-driven peri-implant disease will be discussed as little knowledge exists in the dental industry on how cement flows and how hydraulic forces can lead to tissue destruction.
