Course Description

The use of dental implants to restore partial and totally edentulous patients is a successful treatment in dentistry, and the prevalence of complications regarding dental implants is growing in the same proportion.

Two major categories of complications occur: 1) biological complications associated with implant placement and healing surrounding structures, and 2) technical complications associated with the prosthetic components of the implant or the prosthesis itself.

This presentation focuses on the management of biological complications, also called peri-implantitis, including prevalence, severity, and strategies to treat and solve these complications that could adversely affect the clinical outcomes and success rate. 

Learning Topics

  • Define biological and technical complications in oral implantology
  • Discuss etiology and risk factors for biological complications, and how to avoid them in your clinical practice
  • Learn about the surgical and non-surgical treatment modalities of peri-implantitis using several methods, including laser and a new method with pulse electromagnetic field (PEMF)
