The treatment of peri-implant infections on dental implants (S3 guideline, GERMANY)

The guideline addresses nonsurgical and surgical therapies for peri-implant mucositis and perimplantitis on dental implants.
The main findings are:
  • Complete healing of peri-implant mucositis could not be predictably achieved in all patients after using both alternative and conventional biofilm removal procedures.
  • Therefore, regular follow-up visits (e.g., every 3 months) should be scheduled for early detection of the need for retreatment.
  • Alternative biofilm removal procedures should be used for non-surgical treatment of peri-implantitis.
  • If the treatment objective cannot be achieved by nonsurgical therapy, advanced lesions in particular should receive early surgical therapy.

The guideline is valid from December 2022 to December 2027
