Diagnosis and Management of Biological Complications

Once integrated into the alveolar bone, implants can be affected by biological complications such as peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis. Clinicians must be able to monitor the health of the peri-implant tissues and to diagnose biological complications when they occur. These complications need to be managed using evidence-based strategies, and the efficacy of treatment, including the limitations of therapy, must be considered and discussed with patients.
