Why peri-implantitis develops on patients?

Even though peri-implantitis is not that frequent, such case needs to be properly evaluated by your dentist. The reasons why peri-implantitis develops on a patient are varied and, in most cases, will pretty much depend on the life style and the daily habits adopted. Here are the main reasons why peri-implantitis appears on a patient with dental implants:

•    a poor oral hygiene after a dental implant treatment;
•    the use of tobacco;
•    untreated periodontitis;
•    bruxism;
•    diabetes.

Patients who deal with swelling and bleeding gums, calculus accumulation and a progressive increase in probing depth while brushing the teeth should see a dentist right away. The dental implants can last a lifetime if proper oral hygiene is provided, but if signs of peri-implantitis have shown, a specific dental treatment needs to be performed. Our Dubai dentist can help you with information about the treatments for peri-implantitis, as soon as you visit our dental clinics in Dubai.

How to treat peri-implantitis

After numerous researches regarding the treatments for peri-implantitis, it seems like the only successful treatment available is the surgical therapy. This kind of treatment involves flap surgery and antimicrobial therapy, alongside with different regenerative methods to restore the bone implant. Studies say that implantoplasty is also a suitable treatment for patients with peri-implantitis, when the dental implant is drilled with the purpose of eliminating the damaged surface where bacteria caused trouble. This is also known as a proper method of surface decontamination, where laser and photodynamic therapy are used. The treatment for peri-implantitis doesn’t stop with only one session to the dentist, a strict supervision and numerous dental check-ups being necessary.
