This Conference has been approved for a maximum of 15 CE hours.

The percentage of implants with these diseases are reported as high as 45 percent after only a few years of service. What can be done in the early and late stages of implant disease? When should an implant be taken out? • Identify and describe peri-implantitis, and peri-mucositis. • Discuss the relationship between medical conditions to implant failure. • Discuss the relationship between medications to implant failure. • Describe the levels of implant failure. • Discuss the treatment of early, moderate, and advanced peri-implantitis. • Describe oral hygiene to prevent recurrence of implant diseases. • Describe dental hygienist maintenance of implant diseases. • Discuss the rescue of failing prosthodontic treatments.
