Osseointegration is the treatment modality opted in the rehabilitation of partially or fully edentulous patients. However, the surrounding tissues may be subject to inflammatory conditions, similar to periodontal disease, and so requires maintenance. The dental personnel should have current knowledge about methods of safely instrumenting implants and knowledge of available products, which could be safely recommended to patients to initiate effective home care of implants. It can be challenging to achieve effective oral hygiene around dental implants over the long term, and the patient, dentist, and dental hygienist must exercise considerable effort to achieve the desired results. This article discusses the background, etiology, diagnosis of peri-implant diseases, maintenance, care of osseointegrated implants.
