Restoratively Driven Implant Failure: “Dentistry’s Dirty Little Secret” Prevention, Maintenance and Technical Solutions.  

Many techniques and products have been developed specifically for cement retained implant restorations; some are potentially detrimental to implants, with dentists not fully aware of the issues and implications of using an inappropriate material or method. To date no protocol exists for cementing implant-retained super-structures. The goal is to examine these from a scientific based perspective and present up-to-date and as of yet unpublished research data that will be used to develop a suitable protocol for clinical practice. This lecture explores many of the problems encountered with cement selection, application techniques and
gives clinical guidelines based on research projects currently being undertaken.

Attendees: Doctors, Hygienists, Lab Technicians and Staff.

Lecture Objectives:

  • Defining the importance of cement selection- understand what you need from a cement material- be aware- be safe.
  • Preventing failures and understand detection techniques for the management of excess cement extrusion.
  • Development of an implant cementation protocol that will benefit you and your patients.
  • Understand the negative implications of “Fugazzi Components”
  • Management of complications associated with cement induced peri-implantitis.
