This course provides an illustration of the diagnostic path and treatment protocols for addressing peri-implant diseases, including peri-implantitis and peri-implant mucositis. The main objective of peri-implantitis therapy is to achieve complete resolution of bony defects, reduction in peri-implant pocket depth, and elimination of soft tissue inflammation. The course offers a comprehensive overview of peri-implant diseases and conditions, starting from peri-implant health to peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis. It covers the biological rationale and surgical protocol underlying peri-implant therapy, emphasizing the evaluation of multi-level risk factors and conducting a thorough differential diagnostic analysis. The surgical approach is presented through a detailed clinical flow chart that guides clinicians in selecting the most appropriate treatment protocol. Each surgical technique is demonstrated using a step-by-step approach, accompanied by numerous pictures and clinical videos. The course also explores the clinical potential and limitations of guided bone regeneration and osseous resective therapy compared to other surgical techniques, as well as the role of supportive periodontal therapy.

Additionally, the use of barrier membranes, bone substitutes, and biologically active regenerating materials in peri-implant regenerative surgical therapy is discussed in detail, helping clinicians make informed decisions based on the properties of each biomaterial and the shape of the defect. The clinical efficacy and effectiveness of peri-implantitis therapy are analyzed based on the speaker's personal experience and the latest high-level scientific evidence.
