Case report: Repair of osseous defect on an implant
from Dr. Bicuspid
A 70-year-old patient presented to the dental practice for an emergency exam after experiencing pain around the peri-implant tissues of implant five. On evaluation, sulcular pus and buccal edematous tissue were observed — both associated with the implant in question. Following radiological studies of the affected area, implant five exhibited coronal bone loss and classic “cupping,” consistent with signs of occlusal overload. The patient received a diagnosis of peri-implant disease secondary to occlusal overload.
