Pikos Symposium 2022 – Dr. Alberto Monje

Soft tissue Conditioning for the Prevention and Management of Peri-implantitis 

Biological and esthetic complications are often associated to soft tissue characteristics. In fact, keratinized and attached mucosa has demonstrated being key in long-term peri-implant health.

The lecture will illustrate the rationale and the step-by-step approach for soft tissue management in the prevention of complications and also in the management of peri-implantitis as adjunct to the anti-infective therapy.

Learning Objectives:
• To understand the significance of keratinized mucosa to prevent peri-implant disorders
• To illustrate the step-by-step approach for soft tissue grafting for the primary and secondary prevention of peri-implantitis
• To illustrate the technical and biological principles of soft tissue grafting simultaneously to anti-infective therapy of peri-implantitis
