Be sure not to miss Dr. Aghaloo’s lecture on the main podium:

Contemporary Treatment of Peri-Implantitis
Oct 27, 2016 9 – 10 am

Session Type: Main Podium


Since implant survival is greater than 95% in most short-term studies, long-term maintenance is at the forefront of implant therapy. Most surgeons and restorative dentists know maintenance is required after implant therapy, but no universally accepted schedules, techniques, or guidelines yet exist. Consensus conferences and systematic reviews have helped to determine accurate diagnosis, prevalence, prevention, and treatment for peri-implantitis. This presentation will review current concepts in implant maintenance and peri-implantitis, and present new treatment concepts.
