Title: Current concepts and emerging trends in diagnosis & management of peri-implantitis - An overview


Peri-implantitis is a area  specific infectious desease that causes an inflammatory process in soft tissue ,boneloss , subsequent mobility for  an osseointegrated implant which is currently in function. As the desease prevalence comes only around 56%,the it can end up with implant failure and an ultimate  loss sans multilateral prevention and proper therapy guidelines. Regular evaluation and elimination of risk factors are more or less effective in avoiding this senario .Moreover  recent studies have  also shown that  the type of implant surface also perhaps can  contribute towards this desease . Moderate peri implantitis with mucositis can effectively be managed using conservative methords like laser systems, photodynamic therapy,manual ablation and  an adjunct antibiotic therapy leading to an absolute remession  sooner than later.But in cases with extreme and advanced lesions ,surgical management is found to be more effective than non invasive and conservative techniques .Here the treatment  depends on the extent and the configuration of the defects where a simultaneous resection and regenerative therapies  showing faster and irreversible results in restoring even larger  defects.An interceptive supportive treatment always stays  as a guideline protocol for the definitive  management of the cause.This topic provides an overview and documentation regarding  the current concept and emerging trends in  prevention ,diagnosis,and management of sequel of  peri implant desease.
