Your implant represents a significant investment both in terms of time, treatment, and cost. You want to preserve and maintain that investment so you may enjoy your implant(s) for years to come.

The American Board of Periodontics guidelines on implant maintenance states that "Patients with implants should be evaluated at regular intervals to monitor their peri-implant status, the condition of implant-supported prostheses, and plaque control."

The board goes on to say "The evidence suggests that plaque control is as critically important for the maintenance of dental implants as for natural teeth. Consequently, it appears that effective implant oral hygiene techniques may include interdental brushes, dental floss, dental tape, and floss ribbons, as well as topical chemotherapeutic agents. Professional maintenance using plastic instruments, air-powered abrasives, as well as polishing with a rubber cup and fine abrasive, also may be indicated."
