Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Dental implants are becoming the primary and preferred treatment for patients to replace missing teeth. These current treatments extend from partially edentulous to the fully edentulous patients. Despite remarkable accomplishment of the dental profession in achieving 95–98% success rates for dental implants, recent prevalence studies have indicated that dental implant failure rates are significantly increasing. These failure rates are largely due to peri-implantitis and initial forms of peri-implantitis (peri-implant mucositis).

Various etiological factors encompassing both dental and systemic disease have recently been elucidated and reported. However, there is no consistency and congruence of the causes of peri-implantitis. The proper diagnosis and treatment of patients prone to peri-implantitis is of increasing importance, in order to identify the risk factors prior to surgical implant placement and implement appropriate maintenance therapies.

Management of peri-implantitis and impending implant failures have been reported in the literature; however, there is no consensus as to the best approaches to implant rescue. These therapies range from non-surgical to laser treatments, to regenerative and resective surgical approaches.

This special issue aims to provide new information on the prevalence, diagnosis, etiology, risk factors and pathological mechanism of peri-implantitis. It will also focus on advances in treatment, and new preventative and maintenance measures for peri-implantitis, and cover the effects of systemic diseases and metal allergies relating peri-implantitis. This Special Issue welcomes laboratory and clinical studies from around the world to offer their solutions for peri-implantitis treatment and management.
