On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition, Katrina Sanders, continues her discussion around Peri-Implant soft and hard tissue deficiencies, today discussing maintaining implants.
“We now know that dental implants, just like natural teeth, certainly can fail. And in fact, if we are not maintaining the periodontium around a dental implant the likelihood that this implant could fail and fail very quickly due to progressive disease is very high.”
“The first piece of research indicates that nonmetal scalers and rubber cups are not effective for implant debridement. “
