Peri-Implantitis and Risk
Heitz-Mayfield, Lisa
This article outlines the definition of peri-implantitis, the clinical features and the prevalence of the disease. The evidence for patient-related and local risk factors for peri-implantitis is presented. A novel risk assessment tool designed for preventing peri-implantitis, the Implant Disease Risk Assessment (IDRA) (Heitz-Mayfield et al. 2020) is explained. The importance of continuous assessment, patient communication and intervention for the minimization and management of risk is highlighted.
