The past two decades have shown that dental implants don’t necessarily last forever, that dental implants are associated with various complications or problems and that the soft tissues surrounding implants are more prone to infection. Furthermore, we have also learned that dental implants are not free of maintenance. Therefore, the question arises how to conduct successful and reliable implant maintenance?

Learning Outcomes:

Discuss the differences between periodontal and peri-implant soft tissues
Discuss the pathogenesis of peri-implant diseases
Discuss the classification of peri-implant diseases
Discuss the efficacy of different implant maintenance techniques
