- Abstract & learning objectives
It is fundamental for the long-term success of dental implants to maintain the stability of the hard and soft tissues. The present course will provide information on how to manage and reconstruct deficient peri-implant defects and how to decontaminate implant surfaces using different laser wavelengths.
Participants will be able to be active in the placement of dental implants, creating a defect simulating the peri-implant defect and utilizing laser technology for peri-implantitis treatment.
ORAL PRESENTATION ABSTRACT
Peri-implantitis is a frequent oral disease and different treatment concepts have been utilized with unpredictable clinical outcomes. The lecture will show the etiological factors of the disease and treatment opportunities with the main focus the long term success. Different in vitro studies will present fundamental information about the laser wavelengths and their effects on the implant surface. The rationale for the use of the correct laser wavelength will be emphasized with a special focus on the safety and improvement of wound healing.
