Understanding and Mitigating the Role of Titanium Particle Release in Peri-implant Disease to Enhance Patient Care

Dr. Georgios Kotsakis

Professor and Assistant Dean for Clinical Research

Director of Research at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine

Board-Certified Periodontist

 

After this session, participants will have a deeper understanding of how to mitigate the effects of empirical dental treatments associated with titanium particle-mediated Peri-implantitis. Through clinical cases, participants will learn strategies to reduce and prevent Peri-implantitis to enhance the care they provide to their patients.

Learning Objectives

  • Define Peri-implantitis and diagnostic criteria
  • Understand the interactions between biological peri-implant environment, oral bacteria and biomaterial that lead to titanium release
  • Review the role of titanium in perturbing oral tissue homeostasis
  • How to appropriately clean implants without releasing titanium particles
