Dr. Wadhwani Speaks In London at EuroPerio Scientific Program
June 14, 2015
At EuroPerio 2015 Scientific Program in London, England, Dr. Wadhwani spoke to dental professionals from around the globe, discussing the impact of cement, its techniques and protocols for long term outcomes.
Residual cement is considered a main causal risk factor for peri-implant disease. Cement remnants causing microbial activity, immune reaction, allergic response, activation of titanium surface may be the route by which bone is lost around implants. Dr Wadhwani discusses the possible etiology of restorative driven peri-implant disease and the little knowledge that exists in the dental industry about the technical and physical background of cementation techniques and protocols, e.g. how cement flows and how the hydraulic forces developing during cementation procedures can lead to tissue destruction around the implant. By using sophisticated computational fluid dynamics the attempt is to increase the knowledge and give important insights, identifying the ideal cement application location within the crown lumen, use of adequate amount of cement, influence of speed of crown seating, and explaining how to minimize residual excess cement and the the related problems.
