Impact of Prosthesis Design On Peri-Implant Disease
Clinicians can mitigate the risk of peri-implant mucositis and periimplantitis by considering these factors in implant prosthesis design.
After reading this course, the participant should be able to:
- Explain risk factors for peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis, and the prevalence of these conditions.
- List some of the clinical factors that influence outcomes in dental implant therapy.
- Discuss specific prosthesis design features that increase the risk of peri-implant disease.
- Describe treatment strategies to minimize the risk of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis.
