Pp. 336-347 (12)
Preservation of natural teeth is the primary goal of dentistry. In severe
periodontal settings, knowledge of patient expectations, case prognosis, properly
diagnostic and surgical skills with delegation of basic services to dental hygienists are
the key elements of long-term implant success. Implant dentistry in advanced
periodontitis requires a 2 step, time-tested approach evaluating the outcomes of basic
periodontal therapy prior to implant placement.
