In the recent years, implants have emerged as a very successful treatment modality to replace missing teeth. The success of implant therapy depends upon adequate diagnosis and treatment planning. There is a direct relationship between the success of implant therapy and oral hygiene maintenance of dental implants. A clear directive must be established by every clinician for the implant maintenance protocol with routine clinical evaluation of implants. Clinicians must be well versed with the means to assess and maintain implants along with the techniques and instruments to be used. The patients must be made aware to set up an adequate home care ritual for long term success of dental implants. This article explains implant assessment, monitoring, and home & in office maintenance protocol.
