How to select the appropriate implant and the right number of implants?
Markus Schlee
Treatment planning in cases with hopeless dentition in periodontal compromised patients is a challenge. Should we maintain at least a certain number of teeth or remove them all and replace them by implants? Which number of implants are necessary and which design is appropriate? Timing of implant placement, management of infections and bone defects are a major issue.

The aim of this lecture is to present the most recent evidence to answer these questions and based on this to point out a clear treatment strategy.
