Background: Peri-implantitis is an infectious disease that causes an inflammatory process around an osseointegrated implant in both soft and hard tissues. The etiology of this occurrence lies in the bacterial activity conditioned by the tissue status, implant design, and the mechanical load during implantation and the following prosthetic rehabilitation. What can we do in avoiding the last and least wanted procedure – the explantation? In this article, we will describe all possibilities that we are able to do against the infection, such as bacterial infection control, decontamination and tissue regeneration. We will put a special accent to the laser debridement as one of the newest and most promising procedures, as well as most biological one. Keywords: peri-implantitis, implant, infection, decontamination
