Trauma in Implant Dentistry
Diagnosis and planning is the key to prevent complications that may occur during and after the treatment. These complications may begin at the time of surgery related to hard and soft tissues.
The lack of a good diagnosis and planning can lead to a bad surgical technique, which can be followed by trauma of the tissues. This trauma can directly affect the osseointegration process, or even lead to complete tissue resorption, compromising or conditioning the final result. This resorption may be not only due to the direct surgical trauma but also due to lack of knowledge of biological principals necessary for the maintenance of the tissues, as well as ignorance of the fundamental principles of guided tissue regeneration.
In many of these cases, we can include the position of the implant, type of platform used, techniques of Guided Bone Regeneration, among others. It is important to understand that even if there is no trauma from a biological point of view, the position of the implants can condition the aesthetic result.
The resolution of these clinical cases is not easy and often requires the removal of the implant, regeneration of hard and soft tissue and placement of new implant. It is important to understand that a good diagnosis, planning, and treatment based on knowledge of concepts and guidelines is critical to the biological and functional success of implant rehabilitation.
This formation integrates in its programmatic content, the presentation of clinical cases showing complications in every levels during treatment, along with evidence based explanation.
