Therefore, a comprehensive maintenance protocol should be followed to ensure the longevity of the implant. Maintenance of the peri-implant health is a critical factor in the long-term success of dental implant therapy. This article reviews about the evaluation of implants and various professional and home care methods of dental implant prosthesis.
Key words: Dental implants, peri-implant mucosa, hygiene, maintenance, long term success.
