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.
