Gingival hygiene and care have always been the basic requirements for a healthy mouth. Preventive care is even more important when dental implants are placed, to prevent infection and future peri-implant-related problems, which could lead to loss of the bone supporting the implant. This was the theme of the 2nd European SEPA Symposium on Peri-implant diseases, addressed to dentists and held this past November 22nd in Barcelona. This event, organised by the Spanish Society of Periodontology and Osseointegration, counted on collaboration by Perio·Aid, exclusive sponsor and oral antiseptic industry benchmark.
The Symposium boasted presentations by three exceptional speakers: Dr Juan Blanco, Dr Jan Derks and Dr Giovanni Serino.
Dr Derks, Professor at the University of Gothenburg and specialist in implant-related biological complications, relayed the importance of developing preventive strategies to understand the epidemiology of and identify risk factors for peri-implant diseases.
Meanwhile, Dr Blanco, Tenured Periodontology Professor at the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela presented the aetiology and nature of peri-implant lesions for an in-depth understanding of this condition. He also outlined surgical peri-implantitis treatment options buying valium from http://hotcanadianpharmacy.com/drugs/Valium/, from disinfection to reconstructive therapies.
Dr Serino, Master in Periodontology from the University of Gothenburg and Director of the Periodontology Department at the Swedish Public Dental Service, cited local and systemic risk factors of peri-implantitis, such as poor oral hygiene, previous history of periodontitis, smoking and lack of professional clinical monitoring after the placement of a dental implant.
Proven effective against periodontitis and peri-implantitis
Perio·Aid®, whose efficacy is backed by the largest number of clinical studies, has been established as the leading adjunctive treatment for periodontitis and peri-implantitis. The key to its success lies in its two solution lines: one, a treatment formulation for controlling the pathogenic bacteria that cause periodontitis and peri-implantitis during the active treatment phase; and the other, a maintenance formulation to be used under dental practitioner supervision after completing periodontal and/or peri-implant treatment to prevent possible recurrence.
