This program incorporates a didactic presentation of specific treatments for peri-implantitis that have been successful for clinicians. Laser devices and techniques to be discussed include a 9300-nm carbon dioxide laser (Solea, Convergent Dental, Needham, Mass., USA); 2780- nm Er,Cr:YSGG laser (Waterlase iPlus, Biolase, Irvine, Calif., USA); and photobiomodulation with an 810 and 980-nm diode laser (Gemini, Ultradent, South Jordan, Utah, USA). Included is a discussion of adjuncts used for the treatment, including certain biologics, as well as an explanation of a 2017 consensus report on treating peri-implantitis.



Educational Objectives
  • Discuss the use of laser to disinfect an implant surface.
  • Examine the use of biologic materials to aid in the success of peri-implantitis treatment.
  • Explain the use of photobiomodulation in postoperative care.
  • Summarize the consensus report on peri-implantitis treatment from the 2017 ALD meeting.
