Unfolding Peri-Implantitis. Diagnosis, Prevention, Management


Unfolding Peri-Implantitis” is a timely publication to enlarge the armamentarium of the implant clinician.  When osseointegration was introduced as a therapy for the replacement of the natural dentition by Branemark, it appeared to be a highly predictable procedure if performed under sterile conditions by dentists with a formal surgical background. It was accepted as an appropriate predictable solution for young and middle-aged edentulous patients. No one anticipated the positive results and the acceptability of clientele to follow through with these therapies.

The editors have engaged surgical and prosthetic thought leaders to share their methods ranging from prevention to regeneration. The surgical complications require a decision whether to save a tooth or insert an implant. The location of the implant is important if it can be performed in an acceptable fashion for the patient. The patient’s satisfaction will vary greatly from posterior teeth to the esthetic zone. Therefore, there are times where you can save the implant although it is not in the best interest of the patient.

A well-prepared clinician resolves this decision based on previous experience and recently-approved therapeutics. This text provides contemporary information to practice constructive endpoint goals for the patients. I would suggest that there is a place in every dental operatory for this text and I am sure that it will provide the solutions required to manage peri-implantitis.
