“Restoration of Function and Aesthetics: Implants are they always an added value ? “
In the last twenty years, implant therapy has changed the patient’s treatment plan, at times in a radical manner. Clinical evidence has positioned implants as one of the first choices of treatment for partially or fully edentulous patients and has influenced the decision to extract periodontitis-affected teeth, which in a number of cases may be treatable. The concept of early extraction of periodontally involved teeth and their replacement with dental implants is based on a perceived advantage of implants over teeth in terms of unpredictability of tooth survival following treatment of periodontal disease, better long-term prognosis of implant- supported restorations in comparison to teeth or tooth-supported restorations, lack of complications in comparison with teeth, better function than teeth, better long-term cost–benefit, better esthetics, and better patient satisfaction. However, it is questionable to which extent these postulations are supported by the current evidence. Is it possible a rational choice between teeth and implants in the decision-making process? If yes, how to choose?
And what is the impact of implants in periodontal prosthesis procedures? The aim of the course is to try to answer this still opened questions and to give some clinical guidelines regarding the functional and aesthetic rehabilitation of patients affected by severe periodontal disease based on the available scientific data and my personal 30-year clinical experience.
Attendee will learn:
The benefit but also the limits of periodontal prosthetics and implant therapy in the rehabilitation of patients affected by severe periodontal disease.
To carefully evaluate the cost/benefit ratio in both economical and biological point of view.
To differentiate between dogmas and what is really fundamental for a long-term successful treatment.
To consider the patient as the protagonist of treatment plan.
