Use of the implant-supported prosthesis has gained a strong foothold in oral rehabilitation in recent decades. The increasing number of implant restorations has necessitated their long-term maintenance for optimal health. The ubiquitous use of dental implants has been associated with the occurrence of implant failure, one of the most important causes being periimplant infections. Periimplant infection is a condition wherein clinical inflammation of periimplant soft tissue with or without periimplant bone loss is evident. Knowledge of etiology alone determines the treatment and long-term maintenance of implants and periimplant tissue. There is a spate of scientific data exploring the etiologic factors resulting in periimplant infection. In this article, an earnest effort is made to analyze and present contemporary research data.
