At present, implant restoration is one of the repair methods of dentition defects and dentition loss, and peri-implant diseases are the main causes of implant failure, so the prevention and treatment of peri-implant diseases has become a research hotspot. Antibiotics are commonly used to prevent early postoperative infection and treat peri-implantitis, and the application methods are divided into systemic application and topical application, this article reviews the strategies of topical antibiotic prevention and treatment from three aspects: prevention of early postoperative implant infection, reversal of early peri-implantitis and treatment of peri-implantitis.
