IMPLANT / RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY

Implant Failure: An Inconvenient Truth –
How Science Determines Success (or Failure)


With dental implants being increasingly utilized to replace lost or missing teeth, there has been a concomitant increase in issues. Not only surgical, but now restorative problems have come to light. For example, monitoring health of the implant tissues, use of cement, need to understand mechanics of screw design, new materials, as well as biological changes such as growth changes throughout adult life, that are now becoming apparent. We will explore many of these with the goal of providing guidance to best clinical practices.

You will learn:
  • Why soft tissue health is vital to long term success, and how restorative dentists must understand when to intervene, when to watch.
  • Latest in materials knowledge especially related to titanium and what materials can improve it, which materials will destroy it.
  • Monitoring long term health of an implant, do you really know what you are looking at?
  • Mechanics behind the simple screw joint. Are you doing it right, or will these joints ultimately fail?
