Implant Failure, Infection, and Bone Loss: Diagnosis, treatment and prevention of biological complications around implants

Course Description


The success of implant treatment heavily depends on the establishment and maintenance of osseointegration.  Although most implant treatments are successful, cases of implant failure and significant bone loss are also encountered.  This presentation will review the continuum of clinical implant outcomes ranging from implant success to failure, and including the controversial topics of excessive bone loss and infection.  Furthermore, we will highlight that the efforts to clarify the overlap between physiologic and patho-physiologic clinical events around osseointegrated implants are confounded by the existence of multiple proposed aetiologies, shortcomings of currently used clinical monitoring parameters, imperfect terminology, and the deficiencies in the existing knowledge.

Objectives:
1)  Discuss criteria for implant success and the common causes of implant failure
2)  Discuss determining factors for the maintenance of bone levels around osseointegrated implants and the aetiologies responsible for bone loss
3)  Discuss the challenges often encountered in trying to separate physiologic and non-physiologic processes around osseointegrated implants
4)  Discuss which clinical presentations are normal, which require close follow-up or further investigation, and which require a direct intervention to maintain long-term implant stability.
