Monitoring Peri-Implant Tissue Health

Thomas Oates

Implant-supported tooth replacement offers a tremendous benefit to patients.

In order to assure the long-term success of implant therapy, it is important to understand the complex biologic environment that is present around implants.

Implants are biomedical devices that exist under functional demands within an environment shaped by the biologic interactions between the microbial biofilm and the immune response.

Maintenance of peri-implant tissue health is therefore critical to the long-term survival, success and benefit of implant therapy for the patient.

After completing this ITI Academy Module, you should be able to…

  • recognize the anatomic characteristics of the peri-implant soft tissues in health
  • understand how microbial biofilms form on implants and lead to soft tissue inflammation
  • identify the effects of inflammation on the peri-implant  soft tissues
  • list the clinical data that are required to monitor peri-implant soft tissue health
