Summary:

Following the exposure and restoration of two-piece dental implants, some change in the vertical level of the peri-implant crestal bone height has been reported. This change in crestal bone height has not, however, negatively impacted long-term implant success. This article describes how the concept of platform switching is incorporated into a new implant design as a means of reducing or eliminating the occurrence of crestal bone loss. Preliminary observations from clinicians utilizing this new implant design are herein presented.

Learning Objectives:

This article discusses an inflammatory mechanism involved in crestal bone loss following implant restoration. Upon reading this article, the reader should:

  • Be able to identify a mechanism involved in crestal bone loss following implant exposure.
  • Understand how the concept of platform switching as a means of reducing or eliminating this occurrence is incorporated into a new implant design.

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease

Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Treatment of Peri-Implant Disease
Although some risk factors of peri-implant disease are well defined, the lack of efficient and predictable approaches to treat peri-implantitis has created difficulty in the management of those complications. The aim of this review was the evaluate the reliability of the diagnosis methods and to provide a set of guidelines to treat peri-implant disease. A search of PubMed and a hand search of articles related to peri-implant diseases were conducted up to August 2013. A summary of the current methods for the diagnosis of peri-implantitis, its potential risk factors, and a flow chart to guide the clinical management of these conditions are presented.

Clinical Procedures to Control Tissue Esthetics in Implant Dentistry
The demand for creating esthetic restorations has become a consistent theme in dental literature and in daily clinical practice. Surgical concepts that are emphasized as important to the esthetic outcome include resective procedures to change bone volume and levels, as well as additive procedures such as tissue grafting to alter the biotype and volume around teeth and implants. Predominately with implant treatment, today's surgical and restorative strategies play an important role in post-extractive tissue guidance, mandating precise surgical techniques, and emphasizing cooperation and coordination between the surgical and restorative team members. This webinar will explore some of the complications of treatment, underscoring the responsibility of the surgical and restorative teams to critically assess emerging treatment concepts, materials and techniques.
