Bone loss with dental implants results in the loss of implants. Key to survival of implants is daily oral hygiene and supportive periodontal therapy. A longitudinal 10-year study found patients with inconsistent attendance to a supportive maintenance program fared negatively regarding number of teeth lost and results for peri-implantitis (PI), bleeding on probing (BOP), and probing depth (PD).
Thus, the best preventative is to do everything possible to keep dental implants and the tissue surrounding them clean and healthy. And, if peri-implant disease if present, then excellent oral hygiene is a must, especially using products with safe ingredients that promote healing and prevent eventual loss of implants.
