Case Study 4

Periodontal patient, 62 years old, smokes 10 cigarettes a day, suffers from diabetes and hypertension. Patient came for a check-up and the dentist observed inflamed tissue around his implants and bone loss in the same area. Two surgical interventions were performed to treat the infection without significant results until finally it was decided to extract the central implant. The last photograph (Image C4:5) shows the healing process at 7 days, after using a hyaluronic acid mouthwash with a concentration of 0.2%, 3 times a day for a week.
