Paper Abstract

Peri-implantitis is like Damocles sword, threatening over our final results as is the most common cause of implant failure. It is, was and will be one of the most challenging tasks for the practitioner to deal with. The rough implant surface offers the ideal conditions for the pathogenic bacteria to stick and multiply. Even more, the growing mature biofilm is harder to eliminate. Mechanical cleaning and rinsing is not capable to destroy it entirely. Most treatment protocols include strong antibiotics, disregarding their side effects and interactions with other medications.
