Occlusion and periodontics - Occlusion and implant dentistry

Antonio Sanz (Chile)

Time: 16:30 - 17:30
Room: MIRO (PV7)
Language: Spanish
Chair(s): Jaime Sanchez-Calderon (Spain)

Learning Objectives

  • > Occlusion and periodontal problems is an ancient and controversial relationship. We will present new research that supports the idea of the role of occlusion in the accelerated progress of periodontal disease. We will discuss occlusion  in implant cases, how to adjust occlusion, and its role in the behavior of implants in the long term.
  • > Finally we will present several cases of periodontal and implant patients treated in the scope of bio-aesthetic dentistry, the result of those treatments and the benefits for patients.


Periodontal disease is an infectious and inflammatory problem in which the main aetiological factors are bacteria. Waergauh in the 70’s identified bacteria as the solely factor in periodontitis, minimizing the role of many other risk factors in periodontal problems. Today we know that in general, diseases are the product of several different factors called risk factors that contribute to their development. In this context, it is not just the presence of bacteria, but the role of the host that is extremely important in the destruction observed as a consequence of periodontal disease. The role of occlusion will be developed with new emergent knowledge.

Also we will present several periodontal cases treated with the concept of bioesthetic dentistry in which we will see long lasting and beautiful results.

Implant cases will be also be part of this presentation, along with how to adjust occlusion over implant and teeth.
