AAP publishes report on dental implant inflammation reactions

April 15, 2013

The American Academy of Periodontology has published a report reviewing current knowledge of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis, inflammatory reactions in the tissue surrounding dental implants that can lead to tissue destruction and implant failure.

The April edition of the Journal of Periodontology includes “Peri-Implant Mucositis and Peri-Implantitis: A Current Understanding of Their Diagnoses and Clinical Implications” to aid dental professionals in their diagnoses and disease prevention. The AAP board of trustees reviewed and approved the statement, which was developed by an expert committee that the AAP appointed.

The Journal of Periodontology is the official publication of the AAP. View the statement at Journal of Periodontology Online.
