Combating Infection: The Role of Implant Materials
Implant infection is a devastating complication with severe health and socioeconomic implications. Approximately 1-2% of all patients undergoing joint replacement develop a periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) following surgery. In dental implantology, peri-implantitis is also a challenge with a prevalence around 20% and if not treated properly ending with bone or even implant loss. Physicians, implantologists and researchers from both disciplines are exploring multiple directions to understand why implants get infected and what role the implant materials play.
Join the live virtual discussion “Orthopedics Meets Dentistry” and let us elaborate together with our panelists how to combat infections.
