Analysis for predicting the prevalence and risk factors of peri-implantitis
AUTHOR(S): Santosh Kumar and Sandeep Vaidya
Peri-implant disease at functional osseointegrated implants comprises of pathologies of infectious nature: peri-implant mucositis, and peri-implantitis. Hence; the present study was undertaken for predicting the prevalence and risk factors of peri-implantitis.
Materials & methods: A total of 239 patients who underwent dental implants procedure for missing maxillary first permanent molars were included in the presents study. Complete demographic and clinical details of all the patients were obtained. All the dental implant procedures were carried out under local anaesthesia under proper septic conditions. Follow-up was done in all the patients and both clinical and radiographic examination was carried out. Prevalence of peri-implantitis and its various risk factors were evaluated.
Results: Prevalence of peri-implantitis was found to be 8.36 percent (20 patients out of 239 patients). Smoking habit was found to be present in 75 percent of the patients with peri-implantitis. 70 percent of the patients with peri-implantitis were diabetic. Fully acid etched dental implant surface was present in 55 percent of the patients with peri-implantitis.
Conclusion: Peri-implantitis is not a prevalent complication of dental implant therapy. Also, apart from diabetes and smoking, no other true risk factor of peri-implantitis could be established from above results.
