Lecture Synopsis

    As more practitioners become involved in the placement of dental implants the proportion of implant complications will dramatically increase. A recent paradigm shift in dentistry has been the incorporation of regeneration/repair of ailing dental implants. In addition, as 'saving implants vs saving teeth' are compared both clinically and financially, the literature shows a much higher degree of predictability and a lower financial burden when practitioners attempt to keep the existing dentition in the mouth through regenerative dental therapy. This lecture will focus on current and new biotechnology that can enhance regeneration around both teeth and dental implants. Objectives:

    1.      Learn prognosis classifications for dental implants and teeth

    2.      Implement hard and soft tissue grafting into your armamentarium for treating implant and tooth lesions

    3.      Establish a save vs. extract decision matrix for both teeth and implants
