Online Article: Peri-implantitis Induced by Stainless Steel Ligature in Beagle Dogs
Lin, Xingnan / Liu, Tie / Wu, Gang / Zheng, Yuanna / Wismeijer, Daniel / Liu, Yuelian
The purpose of this study was to develop a new method for a peri-implantitis model in beagle dogs in which a stainless steel ligature (SSL) was used independently. A total of 36 Straumann dental implants were placed in six beagle dogs 1 month after all mandibular premolars were extracted. After 3 months, SSLs were placed in a submarginal position on the implants to induce peri-implantitis and were not replaced during the 12-week tissue breakdown period. Inducing peri-implantitis in the beagles with an SSL is a rapid, effective, and simple method.
