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, the proper amount and how hydraulic forces 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.
Dr. Wadhwani received his dental degree from the University College London School of Dentistry, UK in 1986. He received his specialty certificate in prosthodontics and masters degree from the University of Washington. Dr. Wadhwani has a full-time specialty prosthodontics practice in Bellevue, Washington. He is also an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Loma Linda School of dentistry and an Affiliate Instructor in the Department of Restorative Dentistry University of Washington. In 2014 he received the prestigious “Best Clinical Innovations Presentation” from the Academy of Osseointegration. Dr. Wadhwani is an ITI fellow and Past President of the Washington State Society of Prosthodontists. He has lectured both nationally and internationally on topics related to clinical prosthodontics and implant dentistry. He is the primary author of over 40 implant-related articles in peer-reviewed dental journals including the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry, IJOMI, the Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry, the British Dental Journal, Dentistry Today, Quintessence Int. CIDRR). He published the first book specifically related to restorative issues with dental implants, Cementation in Dental implantology: An evidence based guide. He has also contributed chapters to Fundamentals of implant dentistry : prosthodontic principles (J. Beumer ed) , and Dental implant complications 2nd ed. (S. Froum ed). Dr. Wadhwani is presently involved in several aspects of dental research in endodontics, periodontics and prosthodontics with a main emphasis on evidence-based best practice. Currently he works in conjunction with the University of Washington, University of California San Francisco, University of Texas Dallas and Loma Linda University.
