A new tool in the fight against peri-implant disease
from Surgical Restorative
From April 24:
Peri-implant disease has been defined as an inflammatory process affecting the hard and/or soft tissues surrounding an implant in function. Peri-implant diseases can be broken down further into two entities: peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis. Peri-implant mucositis has been described as a disease in which the presence of inflammation is confined to the soft tissues surrounding a dental implant with no loss of supporting bone following initial bone remodeling. Peri-implantitis on the other hand has been characterized by an inflammatory process around an implant, which includes both soft tissue inflammation and progressive loss of supporting bone beyond biological bone remodeling.
