This presentation will focus on the definition, diagnosis, prevalence, risk factors, and treatment of peri-implantitis. Nonsurgical therapy as well as surgical options will be discussed relative to controlling infection and restoring lost hard and soft tissue caused by peri-implant inflammatory disease. Explantation of the severely affected implant as well as the use of a regenerative approach will be described. Materials and techniques will be discussed, and a step-by-step procedure to regain lost bone will be shown together with longterm evidence of efficacy.
