OBJECTIVES: The aim of the current review was to describe the prevalence of peri-implant diseases including peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A MEDLINE search (PubMed) until December 2007 was conducted and different keywords related to the prevalence of peri-implant diseases were used. Cross-sectional and longitudinal studies including < or =50 implant-treated subjects exhibiting a function time of < or =5 years were considered. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: The current review revealed that only a few studies provided data on the prevalence of peri-implant diseases. Cross-sectional studies on implant-treated subjects are rare and data from only two study samples were available. Peri-implant mucositis occurred in approximately 80% of the subjects and in 50% of the implants. Peri-implantitis was found in 28% and < or =56% of subjects and in 12% and 43% of implant sites.
