Treating peri-implantitis using a combined regenerative/resective procedure: a case report.

Author information

  • 1Department of Periodontology, Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA.


The aim of this article is to describe a combined regenerative/resective procedure used in the treatment of peri-implantitis. The following case presented with excess-cement-induced peri-implantitis and the resulting combined circumferential and buccal dehiscence defect. Surgical therapy consisted of minimal resection of interproximal peaks of bone and subsequent guided bone regeneration. The 12-month clinical result was resolution of peri-implantitis (no pathologic probing depths, bleeding on probing, suppuration), radiographic evidence of bone fill of the defect, and some recession that was clinically acceptable to the patient.
