Peri-implantitis: secrets of treatment

In most cases, periimplantitis is caused by infection in the area of bone and implant contact. Many researches helped to find out the microbial landscape of this disease. It consists of various anaerobes and aerobes. However, the general patient health is also important for successful dental implantation. The inflammation in the implant area could even lead to bone recession and other difficulties.

In this article, you can find useful clinical approaches for periimplantitis treatment.

Periimplantitis is quite ordinary complication in dentistry. It is a pathological process, which is accompanied by injuries, inflammation and tissue resorption. Today, we know all the periimplantitis features at the early stage of osseointegration.
There are such symptoms as fistula, purulent discharge and cyanosis of the gum. Periimplantitis can be found on x-ray as bone resorption around the implant.

Periimplantitis treatment consist of both surgical care and of medical therapy.

First step is to isolate the main source of inflammation and to do tissue regeneration procedures. The next step include hygienic measures that are aimed at prevention of further tissue inflammation.
The effective treatment has such indicators as fistula healing, healthy gums and restoration of marginal bone. The main treatment points are immobility of the implants, the resorption is less than 2/3 of the implant size and the absence of loading.

Remember that early detection of any complications and effective surgical treatment can accelerate the healing process and further osseointegration of the implant in the bone.
