Frank Schwarz, Germany

Learning Objectives
– To learn about surgical techniques and materials for regenerative therapy of peri-implantitis associated defects.
– To know decontamination protocols.
– To understand combination procedures for advanced defects (resective/regenerative).

Abstract
Numerous surgical approaches, including access flap
surgery along with or without adjunctive resective and/or reconstructive approaches are recommended for the
management of peri-implantitis. This presentation will
address the following key aspects:
