  Peri-implantitis is a chronic complication affecting the soft and hard tissues surrounding the dental implant. The prevalence of peri-implantitis ranges from 21% on implant-level, and 34% on patient-level. Several treatment methods have been proposed that are aimed at arresting the disease and potentially regenerating bone defects related to it. Here, we report the case of a patient presented with cement induced peri-implantitis of moderate severity with thin, mobile soft tissue and a probing depth of 6mm two years post-implant placement. A radiographic assessment revealed bone resorption of about 40% of the length of the implant. Mechanical and Chemical debridement, followed by hard and soft tissue grafting, was employed as a treatment modality for the successful resolution of peri-implantitis.
