William Becker, DDS, MSD/Burton E. Becker, DDS/ Michael G. Newman, DMD, MS/Sture Nyman, DDS, Dr Odont


PMID: 2391137

Clinical and DNA probe analysis were used to evaluate 36 failing implant sites in 13 patients. Failing implants showed evidence of increased mobility and a high incidence of peri-implant radiolucencies in radiographs. The probing depth was greater than 6 mm in 58% of the sites measured. Moderate levels of Actinobacillus actinomycetemcomitans, Bacteroides intennedius, and Bacteroides gingivalis were detected with DNA probe analysis. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1990;5:31-38.)

Key words: DNA probe, mobility, probing depth, target bacteria radiographic radiolucencies
