Dental implants play a pivotal role in the rehabilitation of missing teeth and have been revolutionary in the field of dentistry. However, clinical and biological complications may be associated with dental implants and may occur primarily due to bacterial infection in the soft and hard tissue around the implants. These are known as peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis. Management of peri-implant and peri-apical infections, so as to achieve re-osseointegration of the exposed implant surfaces, is often challenging for the treating dentist. Various treatment modalities of peri-implant diseases include nonsurgical and surgical therapy. This case report describes successful management and a 2-year follow-up of a case of advanced peri-implantitis using a protocol that involves thorough debridement, decontamination, and guided bone regeneration.
