Biological and Aesthetic complications around implants. How can we manage it? 

The implant treatment is nowadays a predictable treatment, with high survival rates. Anyhow, it is not free of complications.

The most challenges complications around dental implants are the biological and aesthetic complications because they are directly related to the unsuccess of the treatment in terms of the patient’s perception.

The purpose of this lecture is to discuss the different approaches to both complications.

We will divide the presentation in two parts:

First part: we will discuss how to deal with the peri-implant diseases and to evaluate critically the evidence available to support the different proposed therapies

Second part: we will present the most important factors that we must control to avoid the aesthetics problems and also how to manage the aesthetic problem in an integrated way, in a surgical-prosthodontics approach.
