A link has been established between peri-implant disease and excess cement extrusion in cement-retained implant restorations. The histologic findings of two patients with failed implants secondary to residual excess cement are reported here. If excess cement is detected early and adequately removed, resolution can occur in the majority of situations. Simple recommendations are proposed, with the intention of preventing further implant failures from residual excess cement.
