Despite the increasing prevalence for peri-implantitis each year, we continue to lack predictable concepts on managing the disease. This course will aid the clinician on the diagnosis of periimplantitis and discuss how to properly decontaminate and regenerate an implant surface.


  • Learn how to distinguish implant diseases
  • Classify and predictably choose cases for a regenerative approach
  • How to decontaminate the infected implant surface
