A non-smoker male patient of 40 years old, sistemically and periodontally healthy, presented with an implant inserted 3 years ago showing bone loss and bleeding on probing. An open flap approach with removal of granulation tissue and debridment implant surface has been performed with a titanium rotating brush (Peribrush, Tigran, Sweden). In the SPT the patient has shown an excellent plaque control at each subsequent recall visits up to 24 months with a total plaque score of 10% and absence of BOP around the fixture.
