Various methods have been applied for the treatment of peri-implantitis lesions. It was reported that the procedures used were effective in reducing the inflammatory lesion but re-osseointegration to the once contaminated implant surface was difficult or impossible to achieve. The aim of this lecture is to give some explanations to osseointegration phenomenon in general and to evaluate the critical level and kind of organic and inorganic contaminations taking part of the Periimplantitis reaction, corrosion process and others chemical changes on supposed clean implant surfaces. All those complicated parameters will be explained by mean documents based on scanning electron microscopy (SEM), MEB-EDAX, X-ray induced photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) and Proton Induced X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (PIXE), These data will explain mysterious clinical situations and gave us some precious informations about the peri-implantitis high complexity when it comes to surface physico-chemical aspects either Titanium or Ceramic implant.
