What is peri-implantitis?

Posted on: September 21, 2022

Peri-implant disease (or peri-implantitis) is a condition where bacteria build up around the gum tissue surrounding dental implants. Symptoms include:

  • Pain and inflammation
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Bad taste in the mouth
  • Bleeding gums
  • Wobbly dental implants

If caught early enough, peri-implantitis can often be treated by a dentist. However, in the late stages of the disease, it may cause tissue damage, bone loss and dental implant failure.
