The Realities of Managing Implant Complications

Implants have arguably been regarded as one of the most significant developments in dentistry. However, over the years, biologic, prosthetic, and mechanical complications have compromised health function and aesthetics. What are the limitations of implant regeneration? How can we mitigate the complications of bone and soft tissue loss that we are seeing as the field of implant dentistry widens to a broader group of practitioners? The issue of compromise vs. complication is a growing issue in medicine and dentistry as our aging population demands a high quality of life with no boundaries on function of aesthetics. What is the current status of managing inflammatory bone loss around an implant? This presentation will address these issues in an evidenced-based approach with clinical examples.

At the conclusion of this lecture participants will have gained an understanding of:

  1. The biologic limitations of regeneration
  2. How to manage compromised implant reconstruction
  3. The current status of managing inflammatory bone loss around implants
