As an increasing number of patients choose dental implants over traditional methods of tooth replacement, a corresponding rise in the number of individuals with posttreatment complications can be expected. Consequently, treating peri-implant infections is becoming a more significant factor in the long-term prognosis for retention for implant retention. This book provides a clear and easy-to-understand description of peri-implant tissue anatomy and structure as well as etiologic and pathogenetic factors associated with peri-implantitis. Clinical features and current methods for diagnosis of peri-implant disease (including radiologic and microbiologic procedures) are discussed in detail based on numerous case studies. Using a modular treatment approach that emphasizes clinical relevance, this book provides a comprehensive and critical introduction to successful management of peri-implantitis, including nonsurgical procedures (eg, laser therapy and implant surface decontamination), antimicrobial and antiphlogistic treatments, and surgical procedures (eg, resective and regenerative procedures).
