An effective treatment regime for peri-implantitis (P-I) should include disinfection and regeneration of peri-implant tissues. Twenty consecutive patients exhibiting 23 P-I implants with 84 deep (≥ 6 mm) defects were treated using an Er:YAG laser for implant surface decontamination, removal of defect granulomatous tissues, and grafting therapy for bony defect resolution. Probing pocket defects (PPD) ≥ 6 mm (deep probing depths) before surgery were reduced on average to approximately 3.5 mm at 12 months. Probing depths < 6 mm (shallow probing depths) remained stable (mean PPD 3.2 mm at 12 months). Radiographs indicated PPD reductions were achieved along with peri-implant defect fill.

The aim of this case report was to find common treatment with the use of laser energy to treat failing implants. This article discusses definition of peri-implantitis and how to diagnosis peri-implant...
This study aimed to investigate the temperature changes and question the safe laser settings and protocols for laser-assisted peri-implantitis treatment in an environment. Three types of implants (N...
The aim was to evaluate the degree of bone regeneration and re-osseointegration attained when combining a xenogeneic bone replacement graft plus rhBMP-2 and a collagen membrane in ligature induced per...
The aim of the present study was to assess interventions and their consequences with regard to further bone loss at sites diagnosed with peri-implantitis.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the long-term performance of anodized surface implants placed in native bone and followed-up for up to 17 years. Success and survival rates, prevalence of peri-imp...
A clinical trial comparing laser treatment and conventional mucosal flap surgery for treatment of peri-implantitis. The main aim of the study is to evaluate if treatment of peri-implantiti...
Peri-implantitis are important disease entities as a result of their high prevalence and the lack of a standard mode of therapy. Based on the available data, the non-surgical therapy of p...
A laser treatment for periimplantitis using two different wavelengths (Er:YAG and Nd:YAG) will be compared to standard treatment in a randomized clinical trial.
The primary objective is to evaluate the clinical and patient-centered outcomes of non-surgical mechanical debridement with adjunctive repeated diode laser application (test) in comparison...
The purpose of this experimental study in humans is to evaluate and compare, the regenerative therapy for the treatment of peri-implantitis using different bone substitutes and absorbable ...
An inflammatory process with loss of supporting bone in the tissues surrounding functioning DENTAL IMPLANTS.
A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
Guided BONE TRANSPLANTATION of the MAXILLARY SINUS surface with a BONE SUBSTITUTE grafting. It increases the bone volume at the site of the DENTAL IMPLANT and helps stabilize it.
Fixation of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT, during surgical reconstruction, by the use of a bone-patellar tendon graft.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
