Title Treatment of Peri-implantitis : a literature review.
Author(s) Roos-Jansåker, Ann-Marie ; Renvert, Stefan ; Egelberg, Jan

English abstract
The purpose of the present paper is to review available information on the treatment of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis. The results of animal research and human studies are presented. Proposed strategies for treatment of peri-implantitis presented in the literature are presented as well. Most of the information accessable at this time derives from case reports. The reports provide evidence that efforts to reduce the submucosal infection may result in short-term improvements of the peri-implant lesion. They also indicate that regenerative procedures in intrabony peri-implant defects can result in formation of new bone. Several unsertainities remain regarding the treatment of peri-implantitis. Properly conducted long-term follow-ups of consecutively treated cases would seem to be a realistic avenue for accumelation of more information. This may assist in establishing the predictability, magnitude and stability of improvements that can be achieved.
