Introduction: Peri-implant diseases are inflammatory reactions to bacterial infections affecting osseointegrated dental implants. The treatment of peri-implantitis is commonly associated to soft tissue changes as part of disease resolution. These changes may alter harmony in the aesthetic area, and thus may negatively affect patient satisfaction.
Case Report: A 30-year-old male patient reported to the Department of Periodontology, with a complaint of bleeding associated with implant and prosthesis which was placed in the region of 21, about 4 months back. On clinical and radiographic examination, mild to moderate bone loss associated with increased probing depth was seen with respect to 21. In the initial phase of treatment, mechanical debridement was carried out with plastic instruments and implant surface was treated using EDTA and Bifilac, a combination of prebiotic and probiotic. Due to anticipated soft tissue shrinkage, surgical intervention was necessary. Hence, a connective tissue grafting procedure was planned, the results of which are expected in 3 weeks.
Results and Discussion: Volumetric studies have demonstrated that the peri-implant mucosa undergoes considerable changes no matter what type of strategy is used to manage peri-implantitis. A major drawback in the management of peri-implant bone lesions is referred to the aesthetic sequelae which includes mucosal recession.
Conclusion: Given the shortcomings of nonsurgical therapy, surgical access is often advocated to efficiently remove the biofilm adhered to the contaminated implant surface.
