Current Approaches to the Treatment of Peri-implantitis

Prof., Dr. Mariano Sanz

Periimplantitis has become a frequent chronic inflammatory condition of the tissues around osseointegrated implants and in current clinical practice different modalities of treatment have been proposed and evaluated. This lecture will present the new classification and case definition of periimplantits as well as the evidence based modalities of treatment. These therapies will mainly be surgical interventions, either resective or regenerative depending on the anatomy of the peri-implant bone lesion. Representative cases will be presented and clinical recommendations will be given.
