Peri-implantitis
Peri-implantitis is the most advanced form of peri-implant disease, involving inflammatory lesions of the mucosa that surrounds implants, associated with supporting bone loss.

Peri-implantitis

Peri-implant mucositis has a low potential for inflammatory response, and thus, when oral biofilm accumulation exists, the inflammation spreads deeper, possibly causing implant loss. Peri-implantitis has an

Peri-implant mucositis
Peri-implant mucositis is a disease that involves inflammatory lesions of the mucosa that surrounds implants, without supporting bone loss.

Peri-implant mucositis

Because peri-implant tissues have a lower capacity to react to the accumulation of oral biofilm compared to periodontal tissues, peri-implant disease is highly prevalent among implant patients.

Periodontitis is a form of gum disease with infectious aetiology that involves destruction of the periodontium due to excess accumulation of oral biofilm.

Periodontitis

Periodontitis is the most advanced form of gum disease and can potentially have an impact on a systemic level, with a prevalence of 35.4% in adults between

Association between biofilm and infection
Diseases that have proven to be directly associated with biofilm-related infections include caries, gingivitis and periodontitis.

Association between biofilm and infection

The data reflects the importance of biofilms as a source for local infections that can trigger complications on a systemic level.

Many non-pathogenic organisms exist that produce
