Dental implant basics: Oral hygiene instruction for multi-unit bridgework
from Dentistry IQ
With the right amount of bone, an implant bridge can be placed anywhere in the jaw. Some factors needing consideration during the restorative phase of treatment are whether or not the prosthesis is cleansable by the patient and a dental hygienist. Preservation of the peri-implant hard and soft tissues is of the upmost importance when it comes to the longevity of the implant prostheses. With the rise of implant dentistry worldwide, dental hygienists must understand anatomical design in order to educate their patients on how the implant prostheses will impact their dental health needs.
