Sometimes a peri-implant infection starts as an"peri-cementitis'. The primary cause of the inflammation is then cement and not plaque, because the cement remains in place under the crown.
In this peri-cementitis case you can easily see the difference between the use of a PerioSafe test (for normal dentition) or of the ImplantSafe test (for the detection of active AMMP-8 around implants).
