Possible Causes of the Onset of Crestal Bone Loss around Implants

Tomas Albrektsson

Thomas Albrektsson, an icon in the world of implant dentistry, gives an alternative view on the possible causes of the onset of crestal bone loss around implants. In a clear and direct manner, he explains the mechanical and biologic components of implants that influence osseointegration and outlines how these differ from teeth. He discusses osseointegration in terms of a foreign body response and suggests that imbalance in the foreign body equilibrium may lead to crestal bone loss around implants, thereby increasing the chance of peri-implantitis.

At the end of this Congress Lecture you should be able to…

  • list the biologic differences between teeth and implants
  • list the biologic events leading to a foreign body response
