The Care and Feeding of Dental Implants
Angelo Mariotti, DDS
Dental biofilms have been implicated in the development of periodontal diseases as well as in affecting long-term implant success and survival. In both destructive periodontal diseases and peri-implantitis, the induction of bacterial-induced inflammation either around the tooth or implant has been an important component associated with bone loss.
Unlike microbial therapy for destructive periodontal diseases, predictable techniques to stop progression of bone loss around implants have not been elucidated.
Therefore, proper, preventive maintenance of dental implants is essential for their long term survival. This seminar will review similarities and differences in maintenance of teeth and implants as well as contemporary methods for home care, instrumentation and antimicrobial use for dental implant maintenance.
- Identify biological differences between implants and teeth.
- Characterize the conditions and assess the impact of risk factors related to destructive periodontal diseases and peri-implantitis.
- Evaluate various mechanical and pharmacologic methods and techniques for implant maintenance and patient home care.

While at the University of Florida, he was appointed to and served as the Director of the Postgraduate Program in Periodontology and became a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. In 1996, he accepted a faculty position in the College of Dentistry at The Ohio State University where he is professor and Chair of the Division of Periodontology.
He currently serves as the President of the Columbus Dental Society, as a member of the Council of Access to Care and Public Service of the Ohio Dental Association, as a consultant for the Council of Scientific Affairs for the America Dental Association, on the Advisory Board for the Journal of Periodontology and Clinical Advances in Periodontics, as an examiner for the American Board of Periodontology, and as an editor of Pharmacology and Therapeutics for Dentistry.
As an endocrine pharmacologist, his scientific interests revolve around the actions and interactions of sex steroid hormones on cellular proliferation and growth in sex accessory tissues and the oral cavity and he also has a major interest in issues related to dental health care economics. In addition to his research and teaching, Dr. Mariotti maintains an active private practice in periodontology in The Ohio State Dental Faculty Practice Association, is a Fellow of the International College of Dentists and is listed as one of the Best Dentists in America.
