Thursday Courses
Successful Tactics in Managing Peri-Implant Diseases
Time: 12 - 3 PM
Room: Omni,
Type: General    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $0.00  Other Fee: $0.00

Perplexed by the elusive inflamed dental implant? Confused by the various treatment/management strategies? The introduction of dental implants in the overall management of patients is at an all-time high and dental professionals have yet to achieve consensus for a standard of care. Recent data now demonstrates that inflammation associated with implants is commonplace and can result in loss of the implant with failure rates continuing to be at an all time high. Implant diseases range from mucositis to bone loss implantitis. Long-term implant success can depend on quality prevention, treatment and maintenance. The dental team (especially the dental hygienist) requires successful systems and tools to enhance longevity and implant health. Learning Objectives: • Enhance diagnostic and differentiation skills for implantitis versus mucositis • Develop communication skills to educate the patient about their disease • Examine considerations for local versus systemic antibiotics in detoxification/decontamination • Create innovative at home oral hygiene systems that enhance compliance • Incorporate safe techniques for at-the-chair anti-inflammatory Biofilm control with innovative technology, such as air medicinal delivery • Establish the role of dental lasers in both open and closed procedures • Determine the prognosis of a diseased implant and how to develop the ultimate treatment plan

We overcome the limitations by gaining the confidence to provide an array of straightforward surgical procedures with patient comfort and acceptance as a priority. In this hands-on workshop, experience manipulation of gingival and boney margins to obtain satisfying restorative results with defining end points and creating essential biologic width. We incorporate all techniques from traditional flaps to today’s micro-invasive dental lasers. Billing and coding is reviewed to ensure effective reimbursement with case acceptance. Learning Objectives: • Collect data to determine case selection and choose appropriate surgical techniques • Define anatomical limitations of surgical restorative access • Recognize case selection and choose surgical flap/laser techniques to achieve restorative access including flap manipulation, closed laser and suturing methodologies • Investigate laser utilization including wavelengths and respective techniques • Review indications for mucogingival augmentation including attached gingivae and ridge anatomy • Develop post-operative evaluation protocols assessing wound healing and complications
