Abstract

Effective professional maintenance and personal oral hygiene are important for the long-term success and comfortable functioning of implant-assisted dental restorations. Incorporating the most effective oral hygiene devices into each patient's oral hygiene regimen facilitates optimal results. The use of a powered toothbrush with interchangeable brush heads permits effective cleaning of the most access-challenging prosthesis contours. This article presents a useful personal oral hygiene regimen for the long-term maintenance of various implant-supported dental restorations.
