Dental Implants Are Forever: Prevention and Management of Bone Loss Around Implants

Categories: Implant Dentistry, Periodontics

Author(s): Mehrdad Favagehi, D.D.S., M.S.

Course Type: Self-instruction journal and web based activity

Target Audience: Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienist, Dentists from novice to advanced

Educational Objectives

After completing this course, participants will be able to:
  • Identify patients at risk for peri-implantitis based on systemic health, case histories. behavioral and anatomical factors. 
  • Incorporate key implant selection and materials options in surgical and restorative planning which set the stage for maintaining healthy bone and soft tissues around implants. 
  • Describe how a long-term implant maintenance program can be implemented to proactively reserve the course of peri-implantitis early using various patient management, restorative, surgical, regenerative, or laser-based options. 


Years ago, restorative-based implant dentistry revolutionized the field to allow for more predictable implant treatment including full arch, immediate loading, and aesthetic cases.
However, 1-2 out of 10 implants are still reported to be associated with bone loss (peri-implantitis). This webinar will focus on surgery and restorative technology to incorporate a health and maintenance driven implant outlook. A systemic approach towards achieving and maintaining healthy tissues around implants starts before implant selection, surgical planning or restorative design and continues with evidenced based approaches to implant maintenance and strategies for management and regeneration of peri-implant defects.
