Implantation is currently the best option for tooth replacement in periodontitis. Some major contraindications for the immediate implant are acute periodontitis and active infection. We present the case of a 51-year-old female patient with the highest grade and stage periodontitis treated with advanced platelet-rich fibrin-enriched zirconia implants and with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). In particular, HBOT before and after implantation promoted bone regeneration and implant integration, also providing an antiseptic effect. After six months, the implants were well established and fully healed from periodontal disease within 14 months. Further research could confirm a new indication for HBOT in treating periodontitis and dental implantation.

Abstract

Implantation is currently the best option for tooth replacement in periodontitis. Some major contraindications for the immediate implant are acute periodontitis and active infection. We present the case of a 51-year-old female patient with the highest grade and stage periodontitis treated with advanced platelet-rich fibrin-enriched zirconia implants and with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). In particular, HBOT before and after implantation promoted bone regeneration and implant integration, also providing an antiseptic effect. After six months, the implants were well established and fully healed from periodontal disease within 14 months. Further research could confirm a new indication for HBOT in treating periodontitis and dental implantation.
