Luigi Canullo: Clinically induced peri-implantitis - A wider understanding of triggering factors and etiology
- Causes of Peri-implantitis
- Effects of implant surface treatment, implant surface contamination, and iatrogenic factors that can cause peri-implantitis
- Peri-implantitis can be plaque induced, surgically triggered and/or prosthetically triggered
Dr. Canullo focuses on the triggering factors and etiology of peri-implantitis. He discusses the missing links between non-surgical, resective, and regenerative treatment of peri-implantitis and long-term results.
In 2018, Dr. Canullo was awarded with the William R. Laney Award by the Academy of Osseointegration for the article “Association Between Clinical and Microbiologic Cluster Profiles and Peri-implantitis”1
