Chandur Wadhwani: Implants, cement and peri-implantitis - science and the missing link

Video highlights

  • Cementation procedures are a complex system, not all aspects seem fully understood and clinically evidence based
  • Cements have been developed for restoration procedures on natural teeth and not for implants
  • Modern implant protocols with deep gingival pockets do not allow to remove all excess cement
  • Residual excess cement has been identified as one of the main risk factors for peri-implant disease, higher fistula formation and suppuration
  • Whenever possible, screw-retained systems should be the method of choice
