Peri-implantitis is an infectious disease caused by bacteria affecting the soft tissues and bone around a dental implant. Treatment for peri-implantitis involves thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the contaminated area, treating damage to the soft tissue and rebuilding the supporting bone structure for the dental implant.

Peri-implantitis disease involves a bacterial build-up on the base of a dental implant, causing inflammation of the gums. If not treated early, peri-implant disease can result in the bone structure below the implant to deteriorate, which can lead to the loss of the implant.

If your gum has become swollen, red, painful or bleeding around the dental implant, it is important to see a dentist to have it checked.

Learn more about peri-implantitis treatment

When will i need peri-implantitis treatment?

There are two types of peri-implant diseases. The first, peri-implant mucositis, is the category defined by inflammation found only on the soft tissues around the dental implant, where there is no signs of bone loss. If mucositis is treated early, then healthy tissue can usually be restored.

The second condition, peri-implantitis, is derivative of the first condition. This occurs when examination shows that, in addition to gum inflammation, there is also deterioration in the bone supporting the implant. Potentially, this could lead to the implant falling out, as well as other unpleasant consequences. It is imperative that peri-implantitis treatment occurs immediately under the care of an expert.

Peri-implantitis treatment is focused on controlling the infection, detoxification of the implant surface and bone regeneration.

What are the symptoms of peri-implantitis?

There are a number of symptoms to look out for. You may not experience them all, so it is important to let your dentist know if any symptoms manifest as you may require.

  • Bleeding while brushing or flossing.
  • Inflammation of the gums, especially around the implant itself.
  • Persistently bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth.
  • Bone loss in the jaw around the implant.
  • A loose or wobbling implant. This symptom usually does not appear early on as the implant will still be securely anchored to the bone.

What are the causes of peri-implantitis?

The risk of disease is abundantly higher with implants than with real teeth, as the attachment to the bone is more fragile. Poorly controlled periodontal disease, smoking and genetics all factor into the condition.

How is peri-implantitis diagnosed?

It is diagnosed from an X-ray and from a clinical examination by a specialist.
