Loss of a transplant due to alveolitis
First peri-implantitis occurs, then alveolitis following explantation. How should this case be treated?
The 28-year-old patient presented during our consultation hours with peri-implantitis in region 12 with a buccal probing depth of 10 mm and, therefore, loss of the buccal bone lamella. After multiple antiseptic rinses and regression of the inflammation from acute to chronic, the implant and the inflamed tissue were removed under antibiotic protection (3000 mg amoxicillin one hour preoperatively).
