Tooth or implant: what do you prefer?

Liran Levin (Canada)

Time: 09:00 - 10:00
Room: DALI (PV5)
Language: English
Chair(s): Alejandro López-Quiroga (Spain)

Learning Objectives

  • > Understand tooth prognosis evaluation systems
  • > Identify risk factors for implant failure and diseases
  • > Discuss decision making regarding tooth replacement using dental implants


Perio-prosthetic implant treatment plan is usually based on tooth prognosis evaluation and its comparison to the anticipated long-term implant survival. Different approaches for determining tooth prognosis were described in the literature. Over the past decade, the use of osseointegrated implants as a foundation for prosthetic replacement of missing teeth has become widespread. However, there is an increasing trend toward replacing diseased teeth with dental implants. This lecture will provide a re-evaluation of our paradigms, beliefs and knowledge regarding both tooth prognosis evaluation and long-term implant success according to the currently available knowledge.
