Peri-implantitis appears in almost 20% of patients who received implant treatment, and increase in its number is inevitable as time goes by. Although it can be treated by both non-surgical and surgical procedures, in cases which include severe bone loss, explantation and rehabilitation may be necessary. Careful treatment planning and considerations to prevent recurrent peri-implantitis should be taken into account. In the following case presented, a patient with chronic periodontitis and peri-implantitis was successfully rehabilitated after removal of several implants. Extraction and explantation of multiple teeth and implants were followed by full mouth reconstruction with fixed implant prostheses on the mandible and implant retained overdenture on the maxilla. Surgical and prosthetic measures to prevent recurrent peri-implantitis were taken into consideration.
