What Causes Peri-Implantitis And What Are The Treatment Options

Posted on 5/9/2022 by Todd Jorgenson
What Causes Peri-Implantitis And What Are The Treatment OptionsDental implants are obviously the best way of replacing missing teeth. They have a success rate of over 98 percent. An implant is able to last a lifetime if you maintain proper oral care. However, bacterial infections in the mouth such as peri-implant disease can contribute to loss of bone around the implant. This places the prostheses at extreme risk of failure. Luckily, a failing implant due to peri-implant mucositis is able to be treated to help prevent implant gum disease as well as prevent failure of your investment.

Causes of Peri-implantitis


The two main factors that contribute to peri-implant disease are poor oral health habits and previous gum disease. If you have had periodontitis or periodontal disease previously, you are susceptible to having peri-implantitis. You will need to get the oral infection stabilized before you can have dental implants installed. Moreover, you should make sure you commit to your oral health and hygiene practices in order to prevent peri-implantitis because dental implants need the same dental preventive care as your natural teeth.

Treatment Options for Peri-implantitis


The first thing in treating an infection occurring around the implants is to get rid of the harmful bacteria around the soft tissues as well as the implant surfaces. You should ensure you modify your brushing and flossing habits. After that, a dentist will assess the risk factors and the amount of bone loss or implant exposure. The dentist can consider surgical treatments or adjustments to the gum tissue to halt the progress of the disease in order to preserve the implants for the coming years. Contact us to discover more about peri-implantitis and the treatment options we offer. Reserve your appointment today to meet with our periodontal team. If not checked, the peri-implant disease can cause dental implants to fail completely or suffer from other complications.
