Abstract

This clinical report presents a patient who developed peri-implant bone loss around 2 maxillary endosseous root-form implants after restoration with cement-retained single crowns. Significant localized bone loss occurred around 1 of the implants due to retained excess cement. Reparative treatment consisted of a guided bone regeneration technique. Following a 9-month period of submerged healing, the implants were re-exposed and restored to complete function.
