Prognosis of Dental Implants Immediately Placed in Sockets Affected by Peri-implantitis: A Retrospective Pilot Study
Eduardo Anitua, MD, DDS, PhD/Laura Piñas, DDS, MPhil/Leire Begoña, MSc/Mohammad Hamdan Alkhraisat, DDS, PhD

In this issue, Dr Anitua and coauthors present “Prognosis of Dental Implants Immediately Placed in Sockets Affected by Peri-implantitis: A Retrospective Study. As the profession continues to deal with dental implant complications such as peri-implantitis that may require implant removal, it is important to understand the best, most predictable, and easiest solutions for patients. This report retrospectively evaluated 17 patients with 22 failed implants that were replaced. The mean follow-up was 40 ± 16 months, with a 94.7% survival rate. Bone levels were maintained with minimal mesial and distal bone loss of just under 1 mm. The authors conclude that “immediate implant replacement could be considered in the management of implant failure due to peri-implantitis.”
