To discuss the cost-effectiveness of periodontal treatment and tooth retention, and to compare different periodontal treatment strategies against each other for their cost-effectiveness
- Retaining periodontally affected teeth is often possible and long-term cost-effective
- Certain treatments come with limited effectiveness gains, but much higher costs
- Costs are generated long-term during supportive periodontal therapy
- Tooth replacement is usually more costly than tooth retention
- To understand the method of health economic analysis
- To critique different methods for assessing cost-effectiveness and the necessity of cost-effectiveness analyses
- To know criteria underlying cost-effectiveness evaluations
- To know the cost-effectiveness of periodontal tooth retention vs replacement
- To consider cost-effectiveness as one criterion in clinical and health services decision making

Peri-implantitis is a disease affecting peri-implant tissues and is characterized by bleeding/suppuration on probing together with loss of supporting bone. Recent evaluations on the prevalence of the disease indicate that 15% of implant-carrying patients present with overt peri-implantitis. This underlines the necessity for predictable methods for treating this biological complication. Combination of self-performed and professional infection control procedures are the main focus of treatment strategies. Surgical procedures should be considered if the pathology persists after non-surgical therapy. Many modern surgical approaches have been proposed, but, according to the literature, there is limited reliable evidence suggesting which could be the most effective intervention for treating peri-implantitis. The presentation will address surgical therapy of peri-implantitis and treatment outcomes reported in pre-clinical in vivo experimental studies and clinical trials will be presented. Factors influencing resolution of peri-implantitis following surgical therapy and results from follow-up studies will be discussed.
To evaluate the outcomes and limitations of surgical approaches for treatment of peri-implantitis.
To gain theoretical understanding of how surgical procedures may be used to treat peri-implantitis and which factors influence the treatment outcomes.
- understand the objectives of surgical approaches for treatment of peri-implantitis,
- understand the effect of implant surface decontamination,
- know when adjunctive use of systemic antibiotics should be considered,
- evaluate the effect of reconstructive surgical approaches,
- understand the factors influencing our treatment outcomes and their stability over time.
