Abstract

Retrograde peri-implantitis is one of the implant complications when inflammation occurs around the fixture apex. The treatments of retrograde periimplantitis mostly entail surgical debridement and antibiotic therapy. In this case report, we treated the apical lesion of the implant simply by nonsurgical root canal treatment with antibiotic therapy at the neighboring asymptomatic The case report reveals that elimination of the possible predisposing factor from adjacent endodontic-treated tooth is much more conservative and may be the key to the success outcome.
