Patient-reported outcomes after surgical treatment of peri-implantitis
For moderate to severe peri-implantitis, surgery is a frequently used treatment option that produces predictable outcomes. Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are becoming more significant among the outcomes of interventional trials, but they have never been recorded or studied in relation to surgical peri-implantitis treatment.
Studies looking into the PROMs following surgical peri-implantitis treatment have discovered that during the first 12 hours, perceived pain, swelling, and bleeding are mild and can typically be managed with one analgesic tablet. The following days see a further reduction in symptoms. Furthermore, the kind of non-surgical instrumentation used has no impact on how the patient feels about peri-implantitis surgery.
