Peri-Implantitis induced by Titanium Corrosion

If you watched Dr. Georgios Kotsakis’ lecture during the Pikos Symposium 2020 event last October 15-17 and you feel the need to to re-watch it; check out this video where Dr. Kotsakis goes in the hot-seat with Dr. Omid Moghaddas.

Pathogenesis of peri-implantitis

Peri-implantitis is a pathogenetically complex clinical picture and, in addition to local effects, has systemic effects depending on individual genetic susceptibility. It has some similarities to periodontitis but differs in the taxonomic biofilm composition and is also involved in foreign body reactions to the implant material.

Polymorphisms, Bone Health & Peri-implantitis

Other relevant polymorphisms adversely impacting on bone health can increase the risk of peri-implantitis by affecting the rate of bone turnover, the bone mineral density and the formation of the collagen based bone matrix.

Potential Causes of Titanium Particle and Ion Release in Implant Dentistry: A Systematic Review

Potential Causes of Titanium Particle and Ion Release

Implant surface characteristics, as well as physical and mechanical properties, are responsible for the positive interaction between the dental implant, the bone and the surrounding soft tissues.

Increased Levels of Dissolved Titanium Are Associated With Peri-Implantitis – A Cross-Sectional Study

Increased Levels of Dissolved Titanium Are Associated With Peri-Implantitis - A Cross-Sectional Study.

Implants with peri-implantitis harbored significantly higher mean levels of titanium (0.85 ± 2.47) versus healthy implants (0.07 ± 0.19) after adjusting for amount of plaque collected per site (P = 0.033).
