Peri-implantitis is an infection that occurs around implants, often caused by long-term use of conventional implants with rough surfaces. This infection leads to bone loss and can result in the removal of the implant later on. It affects around 50% of cases, sometimes appearing after the implant has healed and everything seems fine. Currently, there’s no effective treatment for peri-implantitis because bacteria keep forming in the mouth. The only reliable solution is to remove the conventional implants and replace them with Strategic® Implants. More information can be found at www.peri-implantitis.info.
