BACKGROUND The failure of the host tissue to establish or maintain osseointegration around dental implants is due to either occlusal or parafunctional forces, premature loading, ill-directed stress, or microbial infection. [] Key Method Sites with peri-implant (radiographic bone loss beyond the third implant thread) and peri-implant healthy tissues (radiographic bone level above the first implant thread) were identified in periapical radiographs using a long-cone paralleling projection technique…

The Relationship between Biofilm and Physical-Chemical Properties of Implant Abutment Materials for Successful Dental Implants

In the case of partially edentulous patients affected by periodontal disease, the ideal type of implant abutments utilized should be one that adheres the least or negligible amounts of periodontopathogenic bacteria.

Osseointegrated Titanium Implants for Limb Prostheses Attachments: Infectious Complications

Despite frequent colonization around the skin-implant interface by potentially virulent bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and bacteria associated with biomedical device infections such as coagulase-negative staphylitis, this titanium implant system for bone-anchored prostheses caused few infections leading to disability or implant removal.

Bacterial colonization of oral implants from nondental sources.

It is suggested that periodontal pathogens can be retained for a prolonged period of time in nondental sites, from where they can later colonize and compromise the health of dental implants.

Antimicrobial approach of peri-implant disease: an update of the current knowledge

Both mechanical and chemical decontamination techniques should be applied alongside regenerative surgical procedures to obtain optimum reosseointegration and successfully treat peri-implantitis.

Development of an in vitro model of peri-implantitis

The in vitro model of peri-implantitis allowed successful growth of microbial communities and the ability to monitor the bacterial shifts between three communities associated with dental implants and has allowed the testing of a range of titanium surfaces and treatment modalities.

Subgingival microbiome in patients with healthy and ailing dental implants

periodontal pathogens may play important roles in the shifting of healthy implant status to peri-implant disease, as indicated by the observed increase in microbial diversity in subgingival sites of ailing implants, compared with healthy implants.

Peri-implant infections of oral biofilm etiology.

The immunological events underlying the pathogenesis of peri-implant infections are qualitatively similar, yet more extensive, compared to periodontal infections, resulting in a faster progression of tissue destruction.

Microbiota in experimental periodontitis and peri-implantitis in dogs.

The microbiological analysis revealed that the total bacterial load increased during the period following ligature removal and established an anaerobic Gram-negative microflora.

Microbiological assessment of the implant-abutment interface in different connections: cross-sectional study after 5 years of functional loading.

Outcomes suggested that all the analyzed connections resulted contaminated after 5 years of functional loading, however, the connection design might influence bacterial activity levels qualitatively and quantitatively, especially inside the implant connection.

Biological factors contributing to failures of osseointegrated oral implants. (II). Etiopathogenesis.

It appears that implant surface properties (roughness and type of coating) may influence the failure pattern and various surface properties may therefore be indicated for different anatomical and host conditions.

Infectious risks for oral implants: a review of the literature.

In order to prevent such a bacterial shift, the following measures can be considered: periodontal health in the remaining dentition (to prevent bacterial translocation), the avoidance of deepened peri-implant pockets, and the use of a relatively smooth abutment and implant surface.

Microbiota of successful osseointegrated dental implants.

The impact on the peri-implant microbiota of crown restorations; implant type; length of time of loading; history of implant or periodontal infections; and whether implants replaced single or multiple teeth was examined; and microbial changes were observed the longer the implants had been in function.

The causes of early implant bone loss: myth or science?

Based upon currently available literature, the reformation of biologic width around dental implants, microgap if placed at or below the bone crest, occlusal overload, and implant crest module may be the most likely causes of early implant bone loss.

Microbial differences in 2 clinically distinct types of failures of osseointegrated implants.

It was found that fixture loss resulting from infection occurred most often between initial placement and second-stage surgery, whereas failure in the absence of infection occurred primarily after insertion of the final prosthesis.

The purpose of this study was to determine the presence of suspected periodontal pathogens in the peri-implant microflora of osseointegrated implants exposed 3 and 6 months to the oral environment of

Periodontal considerations of implants and implant associated microbiota.

Data and concepts regarding the diagnostic value of traditional periodontal evaluation parameters, such as pocket probing depth, bleeding on probing, attachment loss, gingival and plaque indices, and the amount of attached gingiva are discussed.
