A prospective case series was performed to examine the clinical and radiographic changes of peri-implant tissues 2 years after resective treatment of peri-implantitis, including an apically positioned flap, osteoplasty and implantoplasty. In total, 25 patients with 40 titanium implants from multiple brands and advanced peri-implantitis were included in this study. After 2 years, all implants survived, mean probing pocket depth reduced from 8.7mm to 3.3mm and bone level remained stable in 92.5% of the implants. Findings suggest the approach of an apically positioned flap combined with osteoplasty and implantoplasty as an effective and reliable strategy against peri-implantitis.
