About the Course
Dental implants are an established treatment modality in dentistry with a high rate of success and few complications. However, untoward events do occur despite careful treatment planning and meticulous execution of clinical procedures. Surgical complications that can occur include infection, bleeding, wound dehiscence, primary instability of the implant, neurosensory changes, and tissue emphysema. After the implant is osseointegrated, other complications may arise, including inflammatory peri-implant lesions. Such situations may be limited to inflammation of the peri-implant mucosa or, more significantly, involve the supporting bone. All these conditions increase the risk of poor outcomes, including implant loss. This intermediate-level course addresses complications associated with dental implants and reviews selective options for their management.

Course Objectives
  1. Describe the characteristics, prevalence, etiology, and patient- and implant-related risk factors associated with peri-implant diseases.
  2. Describe the screening and diagnosis of peri-implant diseases.
  3. Describe the dental management of peri-implant diseases.
  4. List the surgical complications associated with implant placement.
  5. Identify the hard tissue complications associated with implant placement.
