Implants for Life – Catchy Phrase or Reality?
7 factors that determine long-term clinical success
Today, dental implants have the potential to be incredibly predictable. Do they really have better prognosis than natural teeth? When do you “give up,” and remove and replace the periodontally or endodontically compromised teeth with dental implant restorations? Is maintenance of dental implant similar to maintaining teeth? How do we utilize “dental implant therapy” or “tooth replacement therapy” in contemporary clinical practice so that they are free of complications in the long run? Where is the art and science in this topic of the life-long implants and “zero bone loss” concept?
Predictable soft and hard tissue regeneration, so crucial to the clinical success of each case is highly dependent on the appropriate selection of material as well as the technique and approach. With an abundance of newer materials on the market, the clinician is given the task to marry the right material and technique, often without much scientific guidance. This presentation will review the existing evidence on the science of osseointegration, and clinical studies that validate long-term health of dental implant restorations. What factors, if any, play a role in the breakdown of dental implant support? What should the home care, and professional maintenance protocol be? Do the materials, techniques, and implant systems that a clinician chooses have any bearing on these factors? The presenter will highlight various innovations in soft and hard tissue handling techniques in recent years. Dr. Kim will also review the essence of implant maintenance protocols, diagnosis and recognition of peri-implant diseases, together with a systemic review as to how peri-implant break down can be prevented.
