Peri-Implant Infections: Threats and Opportunities (3 hr)
Cristiano Susin, DDS, MSD, PhD
Dental implants have achieved great popularity in recent years and have become the de facto standard intervention to treat patients with missing teeth. Whereas long-term survival rates of 90% or more have been reported for modern dental implants, two types of peri-implant infections have been recognized. Peri-implant mucositis is defined as the presence of a reversible inflammatory response in the mucosa surrounding an implant and peri-implantitis is characterized by alveolar bone loss that in its final stages may lead to complete loss of osseointegration. The epidemiology of peri-implantitis is largely unknown but recent literature suggests that an important percentage of subjects and dental implants might be affected. Studies have identified few factors that increase the likelihood of peri-implantitis and risk-based preventive measures have been proposed. This course will review the current knowledge on peri-implant diseases including the epidemiology, etiology, risk factors, clinical consequences and possible treatment options for peri-implant infections.
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will have:
- A comprehensive review of the epidemiology and risk factors for peri-implant infections
- An evidence-basedreview ofpreventive strategies and treatment options for peri-implantitis
