Thorough and accurate diagnoses are essential for providing optimal, state-of-the-art dental treatments that have predictable prognoses and long-term clinical success. Over the past 40 years, osseointegrated dental implants have proven to be a clinically successful treatment for edentulous and partially edentulous patients. Advances in hard- and soft-tissue grafting, membranes, bone morphogenic proteins, and implant macrogeometry and surfaces have enablsed implants to be used in clinical situations today that were once unimaginable.

Long-term success and patient satisfaction with dental implant restorations depend on proper maintenance and daily follow-up care by the patient, as well as professional care at intervals to be determined clinically. Otherwise, biofilm formation may result in peri-implant mucositis, which is etiologically similar to gingivitis in the natural dentition and is reversible with appropriate care. This article outlines some of the requirements for optimal patient self-care, professional monitoring, and maintenance.
