Peri-implant diseases (peri-implant mucositis and periimplantitis ) and periodontitis are inflammatory conditions that jeopardize the soft tissues and alveolar bone around implants and teeth. 3 koldsland oc, scheie aa, aass am prevalence of peri-implantitis related to severity of the disease with different degrees of bone loss j periodontol 201081:231-238 4 zitzmann nu, berglundh t definition and prevalence of peri-implant diseases j clin periodontol 2008 35 (suppl 8): 286–291 5 berglundh t, zitzmann nu, donati m.

Peri-implantitis and peri-implant mucositis treatment, laser and surgery december 20, 2017 december 25, 2017 dottox staff peri-implantitis and peri-implant mucositis are two different stages of the same inflammatory process that destroys gum and alveolar bone around the dental implant causing its failure. Peri‐implant diseases and conditions: consensus report of workgroup 4 of the 2017 world workshop on the classification of periodontal and peri‐implant diseases and conditions there are 18 other articles in this edition that you can access at your leisure.
Treatments for peri-implant diseases successfully treating peri-implant diseases is dependent upon identification and classification of disease severity (ie, early, moderate, advanced) for example, an 8-mm long implant with 4 mm of bone loss is likely to be a more severe case than a 13-mm implant with the same amount of bone loss. Peri-implant disease has been defined as an inflammatory process affecting the hard and/or soft tissues surrounding an implant in function (1) peri-implant diseases can be broken down further into two entities: peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis.
Peri-implant mucositis can advance to peri-implantitis around implants in a manner similar to the progression of gingivitis to periodontitis around natural teeth 1 collectively, peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis are known as peri-implant disease 2,3 early detection and treatment are essential for effective treatment of peri-implant inflammatory disease. Schwarz et al (2008) found regenerative surgical treatment to be effective over two years, resulting in cessation of peri-implant bone loss and a reduction of bleeding on probing from 80 percent to 34 percent12 froum et al (2012) also demonstrated the effectiveness of surgical regeneration where he arrested peri-implantitis and reduced bleeding on probing over three to seven years13 (figs 1a–2c. Without proper oral care, you may develop peri-implantitis, or gum disease around an implant the good news is that peri-implantitis is treatable, especially if you stop the infection early in order to help patients catch peri-implantitis early, your pittsburgh periodontist, dr silberg , discusses what peri-implantitis is, how it differs from other similar infections, and how it can be treated.

The ideal management of peri-implant diseases focuses on infection control, detoxification of implant surfaces, regeneration of lost tissues and plaque control regimes via mechanical debridement.
Peri-implant disease resembles periodontal disease in its structure, but has different criteria and treatment options peri-implant mucositis can advance to peri-implantitis around implants in a manner similar to the progression of gingivitis to periodontitis around natural teeth 1 collectively, peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis are known as peri-implant disease 2,3 early detection and treatment are essential for effective treatment of peri-implant inflammatory disease. Peri-implant diseases are classified into two categories in peri-implant mucositis, gum inflammation is found only around the soft tissues of the dental implant, with no signs of bone loss generally peri-implant mucositis is a precursor to peri-implantitis. Peri-implantitis is an inflammatory process affecting the soft and hard tissues surrounding an implant this disease is associated with loss of supporting bone, bleeding on probing, and occasionally suppuration the etiopathogenesis of peri-implantitis is complex and related to a variety of factors. Based on courses at europerio8, it is clear that there is no common consensus on treating peri-implant diseases maria perno goldie analyzes what research is available for dental professionals, and describes several treatment options.
In the event a patient does present with peri-implant disease, non-surgical treatment is recommended to be the first line of treatment this includes re-addressing home care strategies with the patient, as well as identifying any health changes that might contribute to the peri-implant disease process.
