Objective: This presentation will initially review the traditional concept of peri-implant disease, including evidence-based risk factors. Furthermore, it will explore a newer theory, deepening our understanding of this perplexing phenomenon of bone loss around dental implants. Ultimately, the objective is to use the current science and clinical experience to provide an objective system for clinical management of peri-implant disease in our practices. Several clinical cases will be shown to highlight all concepts.
The Clinician: Dr. Norman W. Ickert, completed his general dental education at Vancouver’s University of British Columbia in 1982. He is the Director of the Ickert Dental Implant Centre, a referral practice limited to implant related dentistry. Dr. Ickert also teaches surgical implant dentistry at the Kois Centre in Seattle. Dr. Ickert is proud to limit his practice to comprehensive, aesthetic and functional rehabilitative dentistry, including both the surgical and prosthetic aspects of dental implants, as well as many other related hard and soft tissue enhancement procedures. Due to the highly challenging nature of this specific field of practice, Dr. Ickert and his team have committed themselves primarily to this aspect of dentistry. This implies continuous, comprehensive, educational, surgical, prosthetic training, with world leaders in this field, both within North America and Europe. Dr. Ickert has completed his Master’s Program in Oral Medicine and Implantology, graduating March 2012 from the University of Muenster, Germany. Dr. Ickert is also a Mentor, a Clinical Instructor, and a former Advisory Board Member at Seattle, Washington’s Kois Center.
