Successful Periimplantitis Prophylaxis
Fritzemeier, C. U.
Periimplantitis is the most feared complication occurring in implantology, especially once the implant therapy with its appropriate prosthetics is completed. Suggestions regarding the treatment exist in ample variations and are put into practice as well. However, it seems to be more reasonable to prevent the causes for periimplantitis, which certainly originate to a large percentage from re-infection out of implant gaps and hollow spaces. The possibility of germ colonization on implant interiors exists and should be taken seriously. Attempts to combat re-infection are described in specialized literature since years. Now GapSealR with its sixteen years of clinical experience offers a truly effective prevention against periimplantitis.
