Dr. K. asks:
Have any of you experienced exudate, chronic inflammation, or bone loss with dental implants where the crowns were cemented with Premier Implant Cement? I have experienced this several times and have reflapped several implant sites and found thin, strong glassy type cement shards extending along the abutment toward the implant junction. I scaled off the shards from the implants. This went undetected at the cementation stage and has me very concerned about this kind of excess cement flash as a source of chronic inflammation leading to bone loss and implant failure. How do you prevent this problem?
