ST. LOUIS, MO – December 3, 2013 – Peri-implantitis is notoriously difficult to treat non-surgically. The inflammatory response resulting in loss of bone supporting an implant, gingival bleeding, and suppuration is often associated with spirochetes and mobile gram-negative anaerobes. Part of treatment difficulty lies in effective localized administration of antimicrobial agents around the infected implant. One novel administrative technique involves prescription tray delivery of medication that patients use at home.
