Jacob Javits Center, NY NY
Dr. Lehrman reviewed the current climate in which we as clinicians are confronted not only with failing but also ailing dental implants. A thorough review of the science behind the remarkable LAPIP ™ procedure was explained . Clinical cases were discussed and special attention was paid the idea that soft tissue healing holds as much information for the overall success of dental implants then to counterpart, peri-implant bone. By discussing a procedure which allows for targeted removal of diseased tissue, Dr. Lehrman showed the attendees a viable approach to this fast growing dental implant epidemic, albeit one that caries with it low morbidity and excellent chances for regeneration.
