New surgical procedure shows effectiveness against peri-implantitis

5th July 2017

A novel surgical procedure to combat peri-implantitis has demonstrated potential in a new study from South Korea.

Researchers from Wonkwang University, Yonsei University and the Global Academy of Osseointegration conducted two case studies in which a round titanium brush was used to remove debris, while maintaining the rough surface of the diseased implant.

A regenerative approach incorporating bone graft materials was then used to rebuild the bone surrounding the implant, thereby preventing the damage that the accumulation of plaque and biofilm usually causes in cases of peri-implantitis.

After a two-year follow-up period, researchers found that the bone level was preserved following the use of this technique, while chair time was also reduced, benefiting both the implant surgeon and the patient.

Overall, the researchers expressed confidence in the outcomes of this new technique, leading them to recommend future research to gather further evidence of the long-term benefits of the procedure.

The researchers said: "This technique has the advantages of effective cleaning of the contaminated implant surface and producing positive clinical and radiological results during the two-year follow-up period."
