Treatment Alternatives to Negotiate Peri-Implantitis.

Machtei EE - Adv Med (2014)

Bottom Line: Surgical therapy is aimed at removing any residual subgingival deposits and additionally reducing the peri-implant pockets depth.The available literature is still lacking with large heterogeneity in the clinical response thus suggesting possible underlying predisposing conditions that are not all clear to us.Therefore, at present time treatment of peri-implantitis should be considered possible but not necessarily predictable.

ABSTRACT
Peri-implant diseases are becoming a major health issue in dentistry. Despite the magnitude of this problem and the potential grave consequences, commonly acceptable treatment protocols are missing. Hence, the present paper reviews the literature treatment of peri-implantitis in order to explore their benefits and limitations. Treatment of peri-implantitis may include surgical and nonsurgical approaches, either individually or combined. Nonsurgical therapy is aimed at removing local irritants from the implants' surface with or without surface decontamination and possibly some additional adjunctive therapies agents or devices. Systemic antibiotics may also be incorporated. Surgical therapy is aimed at removing any residual subgingival deposits and additionally reducing the peri-implant pockets depth. This can be done alone or in conjunction with either osseous respective approach or regenerative approach. Finally, if all fails, explantation might be the best alternative in order to arrest the destruction of the osseous structure around the implant, thus preserving whatever is left in this site for future reconstruction. The available literature is still lacking with large heterogeneity in the clinical response thus suggesting possible underlying predisposing conditions that are not all clear to us. Therefore, at present time treatment of peri-implantitis should be considered possible but not necessarily predictable.

Mentions: Nevertheless, despite the magnitude of this problem and the potential grave consequences that may result from a nonresponsive peri-implantitis condition, a commonly acceptable treatment protocols are yet to be agreed upon. Hence, the purpose of this paper is to review the available literature pertaining to both surgical and nonsurgical therapies of peri-implantitis in order to explore their benefits and limitations (Figure 1).
