Prof. Kenneth Kornman – The Role of Inflammation in Periodontitis and other Chronic Diseases of Aging
For many years physicians and dentists divided up diseases based on which part of the body exhibited dysfunction, pain, or physical abnormalities. In recent years evidence has accumulated showing that many diseases, especially the major chronic diseases of aging, are connected though common biological pathways, such that some diseases may develop together and one disease may influence another. Inflammation is one of the most powerful common pathways and has implications for periodontitis and for the general health of your patients. The good news is that you can modify inflammation to improve long term health of your patients.
Prof. Niklaus Lang – Diagnostics and management of peri-implant disease.
One of the successful concepts for the maintenance of patients treated with dental implants is the assessment of the patient’s risk for infection and the appropriate scheduling of the patient according to the his/her individual needs. This requires the early recognition of signs and symptoms of peri-implant disease and the appropriate interception with therapeutic measures. As for periodontitis prevention through maintenance of a healthy gingiva, prevention of peri-implantitis through the maintenance of peri-implant mucosal health is the best guarantee.
