What is periimplantitis and why happens?

Periimplantitis is an oral condition that occurs in those people who have dental implants placed, mostly of poor quality. This is a great risk in our health and dental aesthetics to which we must pay a lot of attention to be able to solve it on time.

 This infection arises from the accumulation of microorganisms that gradually accumulate in the area of ​​the dental implant that is in contact with the oral environment

 Some of the symptoms to detect this condition are the following:

  1. Redness of the peri-implant mucosa
  2. Purulent suppuration
  3. Bleeding on probing
  4. Increase in the depth of the peri-implant sack
  5. Pain when clenching teeth
  6. Radiological loss of peri-implant bone height
  7. Progressive implant mobility

 

Some of the risk factors for periimplantitis could be the following:

  1. Weak bone
  2. Smoking
  3. Poor hygiene after implant placement
  4. Poor position of the dental implant
  5. Bacterial contamination during implant placement
  6. Poor quality of the implant being placed

 

We must bear in mind that we must meet certain goals in the treatment of this infection, some of them could be:

  1. Decontamination and conditioning of the implant surface
  2. Removal of the bacterial plaque from the peri-implant sack
  3. Verification and correction of occlusal alterations
  4. Dismanting and disinfection of prostheses and abutments
