The cause(s) of bone loss around dental implants evokes many disparate views. Unfortunately since the 6th European Workshop on Periodontics held in 2007, no update has been made to the original list of factors associated with peri-implantitis leading to confusion and debate as to what may be relevant. This lecture will highlight some of these emerging areas of concern and discuss potential strategies to mitigate this problem.


  • Discuss the original list of factors enumerated by the 6th European Workshop on what causes pathologic bone loss around dental implants.
  • List what emerging factors have evidence to support their addition to this list.
  • Discuss how the lack of torque driver calibration may lead to crestal bone loss around a dental implant
