On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition, Katrina Sanders, continues her discussion around dental implants, today diving into peri-implantitis.
“They describe peri-implantitis as a pathological condition that occurs in the tissues that surround the dental implant, beginning with inflammation around that peri-implant connective tissue, and then, of course, progressing into loss of supportive bone.”
“At the histological level, when we compare peri-implantitis sites to periodontitis sites, we actually find that there are higher inflammatory lesions around peri-implantitis sites.”
