Cleaning of contaminated implant surfaces and autologous defect augmentation by PD Dr. Jörg Neugebauer
Aim of Treatment
Many periimplant defects need to be carefully cleaned surgically so as to stop infections and the associated further bone loss. This can be achieved reliably with the slender piezosurgical instruments, which penetrate even deep, crevice-shaped defects thanks to their design. Following decontamination of the defect, it is possible to harvest autologous bone material for the subsequent augmentation atraumatically and efficiently using the piezosurgical instruments too.
