Description

Peri-implantitis is a destructive plaque-induced condition in the alveolarprocess. There are factors that may make progressive attachment loss around dental implants worse. The most common are excess cement subgingivally and ill-fitting restorations. Other conditions that may play a role in this process include implants placed improperly, connective tissue and non-resorbed graft particles near the gingival level, absence of keratinized tissue and specific dentin features of the “shoulder” area of the implant and restoration. There are numerous ways to reduce these risk factors and increase the longevity of the implant-restoration complex. When diagnosed, there are different treatment modalities that can help keep the implant-supported restorations in function.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Steps taken to identify the health of the attachment apparatus around dental implants.
  • Ways to reduce the risk of implant-supported restorations developing peri-implantitis.
  • Treatment modalities for early, moderate or advanced attachment loss around dental implants.
