Abstract

Implant peri-apical lesion (IPL) is a periapical lesion, usually asymptomatic, in which the coronal portion of the implant achieves a normal bone to implant interface. A case of IPL following immediate implant placement and treated with guided bone regeneration (GBR) principles is described. Five-year clinical and radiographic followup with cone-beam assessment showed complete healing of the bone. GBR principles applied to IPL could completely solve the lesion.
