Peri Implant Disease

What is Peri-Implant Disease?

Peri-implant (definition: around the implant) disease is an inflammatory condition affecting the gum and bone surrounding dental implants. Similar to a natural tooth, plaque, bacteria, and bacterial toxins can build up on the base of the implant and below the gum line. If undisturbed, the bacteria irritate the gum tissue causing inflammation and damaging the soft tissues. This inflammation will travel deeper to affect the peri-implant bone structure, causing it to deteriorate.

Signs and Symptoms

Just like your natural teeth, implants require regular home oral care with tooth brushing and flossing in tandem with regular check-ups and professional hygiene care. Even if you have no natural teeth, it is essential to routinely monitor dental implants as part of a comprehensive oral evaluation. You run this risk of developing peri-implant disease if you neglect your oral hygiene and dental implant. Signs and symptoms of peri-implant diseases are similar to symptoms of traditional gum disease, including:

  • Red, puffy or tender gums
  • Bleeding when brushing
  • Receding Gums
