Histologic Findings within Peri-Implant Soft Tissue in Failed Implants
March 15, 2014
The New York State Dental Journal published Dr. Chandur Wadhwani's findings of link between peri-implant disease and excess cement extrusion in cement-retained implant restorations. In this article, he shares cases of two patients with failed implants secondary to residual excess cement. If excess cement is detected early and adequately removed, resolution can occur in the majority of situations. Simple recommendations are proposed, with the intention of preventing further implant failures from residual excess cement. Download the full article by clicking the preview below.
