Peri-implantitis: Surgical Therapeutic Approaches Based on Peri-implantitis Defects

The primary objective of surgical treatment in peri-implatitis lesions is to get access to the exposed implant surface in order to optimize: a) removal of the granulomatous tissue,b) implant surface decontamination , and c) meticulous implant surface detoxification, in order to achieve resolution of the inflammatory lesion. The morphology of the peri-implantitis defects dictate the therapeutic approaches and presents a guideline for relative clinical managing. The suggested therapeutic solutions are not evidence-based, however they derived from clinical experience and could be a useful guide.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to 1) decontaminate and detoxificate the implant surface; 2) eliminate or regenerate the peri-implant bony defect; and 3) facilitate adeguate plaque control, to prevent re-infection.
