Orodental rehabilitation through the use of implants offers very high success rates. Peri-implantitis is a site specific disease characterized by bone destruction around dental implants due to the host immune-inflammatory response induced by biofilm accumulation. Several approaches have been proposed to treat peri-implantitis, including mechanical debridement, antimicrobial therapy, and respective or regenerative surgical therapy.
