Abstract

Implant complications have become a major challenge for many dentists who placed implants. This lecture is designed to help dentists who placed or restored implant understand what’s new in implant complications, how to avoid these problems and how to predictably mange this emerging concern.  Recent research findings of how restorative designs influence the incidence of implant complications will be discussed. In addition, this lecture will provide the mechanisms (e.g., surgically triggered, prosthetically triggered and biological induced implant complications) of how implant bone loss and implant failure occurred. The treatments for implant diseases/complications include chemotherapeutic agents, lasers de-contamination, apically positioned flap with or without implantoplasty, implant surface detoxification, lasers, guided bone regeneration, soft tissue grafts (conditioning), implant removal as well as re-implantation will be discussed. Specifically, how to manage implant biological complications using submerged (EP-DDS) surgical protocol will be demonstrated.
