Gingivitis and periodontitis are routine findings in the clinic. With the rising use of dental implants in clinical practice, practitioners are certain to encounter peri- implantitis. It has been proven that peri-implant diseases have a similar progression as the diseases around the teeth. Peri-implant mucositis, as the name suggests, is the inflammation of the mucosa around the implant, which is what gingivitis is to a tooth. Correspondingly, peri-implantitis is to an implant what periodontitis is to a natural tooth. Peri-implantitis management is currently insufficient. Being a relatively new disease, its management has been empirical, and research is still underway.
At the same time, because of its resemblance to periodontal illnesses, therapeutic approaches have evolved in a manner similar to periodontal diseases.
