Management of Failed Full Arch Implant Cases
With Dr. Petros Yuvanoglu
Reported dental implant success rates are high resulting in an ever-increasing number of patients being treated with implants. Nevertheless, implant failures due to peri-implantitis & bone loss do occur. The most predictable management of these cases appears to be implant removal & replacement. The aim of this lecture is to describe an atraumatic method & accelerated treatment modality in dealing with these compromised dental implant cases of complete full arch immediate load reconstruction.
• Become familiar with the concept of immediate replacement of failed implants in the same or adjacent site
• Become familiar with the protocol of immediate loading replaced implants
• Identify cases where immediate replacement is not possible, and a delayed protocol is indicated
