Abstract

Peri-implantitis is a chronic inflammatory disease with alveolar bone loss, and one of the most common biological complications of dental implants. Various approaches have been introduced and developed for the treatment of peri-implantitis, but none of the them have clearly shown better treatment outcomes or fewer biological complications. Especially in cases of peri-implantitis around an implant with limited accessibility, non-surgical or surgical treatment with mechanical debridement is often insufficient to disinfect contaminated implant surface. To improve the result of implant surface disinfection, various mechanical and chemical decontamination agents have been introduced. In this case report, gel type desiccating agent was used to disinfect the inaccessible surface of dental implants. Both cases in this report showed successf ul clinical and radiographic outcome up to 6 months of follow up.
