Aim To evaluate the clinical treatment effects of a glycine powder air-polishing or ultrasonic device on peri-implant mucositis. Materials and methods Thirty-seven patients with one implant diagnosed with peri-implant mucositis (probing depth â¥4 mm (0.2N) and bleeding on probing (BOP) (primary outcome)) were randomly assigned to treatment with either glycine powder air-polishing (GPAP) or ultrasonic (US) debridement. Treatment was performed at baseline and at 3 and 6 months. Professional supra gingival cleaning was performed at 9 and 12 months. Oral hygiene instructions were reinforced at each visit. Results At 12 months there was a statistically significant reduction in mean plaque score, bleeding on probing and number of periodontal pockets â¥4 mm within the treatment groups compared to baseline. The percentages of diseased sites were significantly reduced for both groups. Conclusions Treatment with a glycine powder air-polishing or an ultrasonic device is effective in non-surgical treatment of peri-implant mucositis. Â© 2015 John Wiley & Sons A/S.
