Patient: 51 years old male
Medical status: healthy
Dental history: implants placed on #25, 26 & 27
Chief complaint: "I have some discomfort around the left maxillary area."
3 Brånemark type external implants were placed in the left maxillary posterior area with sinus graft (left). 8 years later, an advanced chronic periimplantis with severe bone loss around the implant was found in the middle implant area (right).

The 3 unit SCRP (Screw & Cement Retained Prosthesis) was removed through the screw holes. Soft tissue around the bridge looked fine.

C6_Peri_04
A severe defect (8mm vertical defect and no buccal and lingual wall) was seen. How can the contaminated rough surface be cleaned and decontaminated mechanically and chemically? Is that possible the contaminated implant surface be reosseointegrated?

C6_Peri_05
A regular size of R-Brush (Neobiotech, Korea) was used to decontaminate the contaminated rough surface mechanically.

C6_Peri_06
Before using the R-Brush, the original screw from the prosthesis was inserted to a protection cap.

C6_Peri_07
The Protection cap was connected to the screw hole to prevent the bristle to go into the screw hole.

C6_Peri_08
A regular size of R-Brush was connected to a 1:1 contra-angle and rotated using a speed of around 8000 rpm with copious water or chlorhexidine solution. 30 to 60 seconds were taken to clean one thread. It took about 5 minutes to clean 8 threads.

C6_Peri_09
A clean surface like a machine surface was seen. It is known that the R-Brush could eliminate the original surface and create a new rough surface which is not like machine surface but like new rough surface having Ra: 1-1.2.

C6_Peri_10
An allogenicgraft (RegenOss) was used to graft the large defect. The implant itself could be a space maintainer.

C6_Peri_11
A collagen membrane was used to cover the graft material.

C6_Peri_12
It was submerged and sutured with a supramid suture material.

A radiograph right after the surgery.

C6_Peri_14
4 months after the surgery, the site was covered by healthy gingiva without any inflammation sign.

C6_Peri_15
Radiographic view 4 month after the surgery.

C6_Peri_16
A remarkable clinical result was found 4 month after the surgery. A complete hard bone formation around the defect area was seen.

C6_Peri_17
Buccal view at 4 months after delivery of the old SCRP. The gingiva looks healthy.

C6_Peri_18
Periapical radiograph shows the result of regeneration of the bone around the periimplantitis area 4 months after the surgery.

C6_Peri_19
8 months follow-up.

C6_Peri_20
Again, before and after the treatment. This treatment option may be one of the options for treating periimplantitis.

An implant having 8mm vertical defect was treated with a R-Brush and an allogenic graft (RegenOss).  After 4 month, a great result was seen…
