The Battle of Peri-Implantitis

Non-surgical vs Surgical Interventions Explained?

Speakers: Dr Marina Kamel

Implant dentistry has seen an unprecedented exponential growth over the past few decades as patients have benefited from the novel treatment solutions it offered to rehabilitating their edentulous problem. However, such growth has been paralleled by a concomitant increase in the number of implants afflicted by peri-implant diseases, such as peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis. Clinicians have had to adapt and utilize a range of non-surgical and surgical treatments in a bid to manage these disease entities and reduce their adverse effects on patients’ function and wellbeing.
