Abscess like formation in implant zone: how would you proceed?

Last Updated December 12, 2017

Treatment plan consisting of immediate implant placement post-extraction and delayed loading with overdenture for healthy 67 year old female. Surgery went as planned. Careful debridement of sockets and a primary stability of 30 ncm was achieved. A removable provisional was installed and first three follow ups were flawless. 6 weeks into treatment patient presented abscess like formation in one of the implant zones. Do I need to explant ? Can this be treated with peri-implantitis protocol? How would you handle this case?
