Implant Complications: A MasterCourse
March 6 @ 8:00 AM - March 9 @ 5:00 PM
The increasing application of dental implants has resulted not only in a significant increase in the frequency, but also complexity of problems we encounter with implant patients. Given the invasiveness and cost of implant therapy, as well as the patients’expectations, implant complications can jeopardise treatment success and significantly affect patients’ satisfaction and trust. Typically implantcomplications have been classified as biological (mainly involving inflammation or pathology of the peri-implant tissues) and technical (involving the various implant or prosthesis components). These two major groups of complications have been traditionally examined as separate and non-related pathologies. Nevertheless, increasing evidence points to the close interrelation between biology and technology. Whether clinically manifested as screw loosening, Veneer chipping or plaque induced peri-implantitis, very often, a biological problem could be the underlying factor for a technical failure and vice versa. Consequently, understanding of both biological pathogenic mechanisms, technical limitations as well proper comprehensive pre-therapeutically treatment planning is the key for the prevention and successful management of implant complications.
