Failing Dental Implant Treatment

Mucositis:

 Is characterized by BOP and visual signs of inflammation.  Peri-Implant Mucositis can exist around implants with normal or reduced support. Peri-Implant Mucositis is caused by bacteria and can be reversed with measures aimed at eliminating the plaque.

 

Peri-implantitis:

Peri-implantitis is an infection; it is one of the main causes of dental implant failure. The infection can form when the bacteria extends below the tissue and into the bone. The dental cement, which is used to fix the crown onto the titanium post, can also cause the infection when it leaks from under the crown and gets caught in the gums. Smoking is a main reason of implant infection and failure.
