Introduction: The late failiure of the implants make us design new therapeutic strategies for solving the bone lost around the implants in long term (periimplantitis). It is presented a surgical approach that preserve the marginal tissues (modified Widman flap) in two pacients one of them treated with a modification of the implant roughtness: implantoplasty (test) and other case with detoxification of the surface with clorhexidine (control). Material and Methods: 2 Women that present clinical signs of inflamation, supuration, bleeding on probing, probing depth >6mm and evidece of radiographic bone lost. Results: in both cases the was a reduction of the inflamatories clinical signs a 3 and 6 months and a reduction of the probing depth. Conclusion: The surgical approach with modified Widman flap it is an effective approach for the treatment of the horizontal defects around the implants with a minimal trauma mantaining the gingival aesthetic.
