Peri-implant Bone Loss Caused by Occlusal Overload: Repair of the Peri-implant Defect Following Correction of the Traumatic Occlusion. A Case Report

Georges Tawil, DDS, DScOD


PMID: 18416428

The purpose of this case report is to demonstrate the relation between occlusal overload and peri-implant bone loss and the reversal of the situation after removal of the offending forces. The placement of an unstable removable prosthesis on 3 well-integrated implants that had been stable for 9 years caused noticeable bone loss after 6 months. The elimination of the traumatic occlusion reversed the situation, and a remarkable healing of the peri-implant tissue occurred until the pretrauma condition was nearly restored. The condition has been stable for the past 4 years. Int J Oral Maxillofac 2008;23:153157

Key words: occlusal overload, osseointegration, peri-implant bone loss
