Figure 3: Periapical radiographs of a maxillary left canine implant placed in a 62-year-old woman who developed peri-implantitis. (left to right) October 2005. October 2008. September 2009. November 2009. Overloading might have initiated bone loss around the initially healthy canine implant. As bone loss progressed and the pocket depth increased, bacterial infection (peri-implantitis) worsened along with suppuration. However, currently, the prognosis of the implant with canine is poor and the patient was informed of the future loss of the implant and adjacent maxillary left lateral incisor
