Chronic periodontitis progression may go through phases of remission and exacerbation. The possibility of periodontal pathogens translocating from infected periodontal sites to peri-implant sites has been reported. Additionally, a history of periodontal disease seems to be a risk factor for peri-implantitis. The present case reports a flare-up of chronic periodontitis concomitant with an episode of peri-implant infection on a documented stable implant site. Periodontal infection was managed nonsurgically by scaling root planing and antibiotic treatment. Peri-implant infection was treated by open-flap debridement and implant surface decontamination. A remarkable regeneration on the peri-implant defect occurred steadily over a 3-year period, leading to a full regeneration of the site relying exclusively on the individual healing resources.

This perspective article on peri-implantitis and its prevention was produced as a supplement to a 3-D, computer-animated film aiming at presenting key characteristics of peri-implant health, the build...
Reports regarding prevalence of peri-implant diseases show widely varying prevalence rates, which can be explained partially by variable diagnostic criteria adopted. Furthermore, several different fac...
(i) to investigate the influence of the keratinized mucosa (KM) on peri-implant health or disease, and (ii) to identify a threshold value for the width of KM for peri-implant health.
There is a need for tools that provide prediction of peri-implant disease. The purpose of this study was to validate a risk score for peri-implant disease and to assess the influence of the recall reg...
The aim of this review was to determine which are the most common peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis case definitions that have been used worldwide in implant dentistry literature. A systemat...
Peri-implant diseases are common post-restorative complications in implant rehabilitations and they occur with an incidence of 12-43%. Based on the available data in literature, the surgi...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate if surgical treatment of peri-implantitis with enamel matrix derivative (Emdogain®, EMD) will have an additional effect on the healing outcome, cha...
Objective: This study investigated how patients' knowledge, attitude, and perceptions influence their oral hygiene practices as well as peri-implant health. Materials and Methods: Particip...
Peri-implantitis is defined as inflammation in the mucosa surrounding an oral implant with loss of supporting bone. The goals of peri-implantitis treatment are to resolve inflammation and ...
Soft tissue attachment to the implant surface serves as a biological seal preventing the development of inflammatory periimplant diseases (i.e. peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis)...
Acute or chronic INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS due to excessive ALCOHOL DRINKING. Alcoholic pancreatitis usually presents as an acute episode but it is a chronic progressive disease in alcoholics.
Techniques used to expose dental surface below the gingival margin in order to obtain better dental impression during periodental and peri-implant applications. The retraction of the gingival tissue can be achieved surgically (e.g., laser gingivectomy and rotary curettage) or chemically with a retraction cord.
An episode of MYOCARDIAL ISCHEMIA that generally lasts longer than a transient anginal episode but that does not usually result in MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
Insertion of an implant into the bone of the mandible or maxilla. The implant has an exposed head which protrudes through the mucosa and is a prosthodontic abutment.
A species of LENTIVIRUS, subgenus equine lentiviruses (LENTIVIRUSES, EQUINE), causing acute and chronic infection in horses. It is transmitted mechanically by biting flies, mosquitoes, and midges, and iatrogenically through unsterilized equipment. Chronic infection often consists of acute episodes with remissions.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Alternative medicine are whole medical systems that did not fit with conventional medicine as they have completely different philosophies and ideas on the causes of disease, methods of diagnosis and approaches to treatment. Although often overlapping, co...
