Location: Cedar Court Hotel Wakefield, (J39 M1), Denby Dale Road, Calder Grove, Wakefield, Yorkshire, WF4 3QZ
Sadly, things happen that we do not expect in Implant Dentistry. This talk will be about how to avoid and how to remedy these difficult issues. Peter will cover the loss of Implants pre-loading, how to assess cases to avoid this issue and how to deal with the fall out when it occurs.
Later bone loss (Peri-Implantitis) and even Implant loss post-loading is an even more difficult issue to avoid and to deal with. Can we treat or is removal the best option? With the arrival of the Neo–Biotech removal system, implant removal has been made more patient friendly, which will be shown along with removal of fractured Implants and re-grafting.
Restorative problems from porcelain to screw fracture will also be discussed as will soft tissue correction utilising soft tissue screws for improved outcomes.
