Perio-prosthetic implant treatment plan is usually based on tooth prognosis evaluation and its comparison to the anticipated long-term implant survival. Different approaches for determining tooth prognosis were described in the literature. Over the past decade, the use of osseointegrated implants as a foundation for prosthetic replacement of missing teeth has become widespread. However, there is an increasing trend toward replacing diseased teeth with dental implants. This lecture will provide a re-evaluation of our paradigms, beliefs and knowledge regarding both tooth prognosis evaluation and long-term implant success according to the currently available knowledge.
This presentation aims to inform the dental practitioner what is required prior to placing a dental implant. It will cover risk factors for implant failure and discussion on how to modify these risk factors. The presentation will also cover how to stabilize active periodontal disease and its influence on dental implants. Finally, suggested management for implant patients will be discussed. The audience will be engaged by the topic as it is pertinent today and real life dental implant scenarios will be shown. This can enforce the understanding of dental implants to the entire team and ultimately, to the patient. We, as dental professionals, should avoid basing our treatment planning on thoughts and beliefs and stick as much as possible to evidence based practice.
