The UCL Eastman Dental Institute under the supervision of Professor Nikos Donos, is recruiting volunteers for a research study that will evaluate the effect of a locally delivered antibiotic around diseased dental implant(s).

Volunteers of 21 years of age or older, with overall good medical and dental health, and with at least one dental implant diagnosed with peri-implantitis may be eligible to participate in this study.

The study consists of a total of four (4) visits over a 6 month period; volunteers will receive £10 per visit compensation toward their travel costs.

Study treatment will be rendered at no cost to volunteers.
