Osseointegrated dental implants have been shown to provide predictable and successful treatment in the replacement of missing teeth and to have no deleterious effect.
These characteristics led to the widespread use of dental implant placement and its increasing popularity. An inflammatory and immune response in the soft tissues surrounding oral implants can exist and may lead to the progressive destruction of the tissues supporting an implant (ie, peri-implantitis) and, ultimately, implant failure.
