Reported dental implant success rates are high resulting in an ever-increasing number of patients being treated with implants. Nevertheless implant failures due to peri-implantitis and bone loss do occur. The most predictable management of these cases appears to be implant removal and replacement. The aim of this lecture is to describe an atraumatic method and treatment modality in dealing with these dental implant cases. (Click on image for larger version).
Over time the percentage of dental implants that fail increases because of biological and technical issues. Inevitably clinicians will have to dedicate more time to dealing with ailing and failing dental implants.
The clinical presentation of ailing and failing implants is peri-implantitis. This is an inflammatory diseases of bacterial origin with bone loss. The prevalence of peri-implantitis varies between studies from 6 % to 36%.
The decision to treat or remove (explant) a failing implant is a judgement that needs to be made by the treating clinician and needs to be based both on clinical and radiographic evaluation.
Dental implant removal may be indicated in cases of advanced bone loss around implants.

Dr André Hattingh will discuss 10 important points related to the immediate placement of the Southern Implants MAX implant in molar extraction sites. The immediate placement of a conventional dental implant into a molar extraction socket poses a number of difficulties. The most significant is the size and shape of the multi-rooted molar socket, which is not suited to allow for the optimal placement of a “typical” dental implant. This often leads to compromised implant positioning, poor primary stability or the inability to place an implant at all. It may also result in the need for a waiting period of 3-4 months, to allow for healing of the socket prior to attempting implant placement. Often, the healed extraction site presents with reduced bone height, which is inadequate for implant placement and necessitates the need for bone augmentation procedures. Treatment time is therefore lengthened with increased cost and complexity.
This lecture aims to address an innovative concept that uses a new ultra wide diameter implant and contemporary surgical protocol that makes immediate placement of implants into multi-rooted molar sockets attainable.
André is a specialist periodontist in full time private practice in Sevenoaks, Kent. He is currently heading numerous studies on the immediate placement and clinical outcomes of the MAX implant.
