The European Federation of Periodontology (EFP) have released S3 level clinical practice guideline
It is well established that both peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis are highly prevalent. In addition, peri-implantitis is particularly challenging to manage and is accompanied by significant morbidity.
The S3 level CPG for the prevention and treatment of peri-implant diseases provided the recommendations for performing various interventions before, during and after implant placement/loading.
“Prevention of peri-implant diseases should commence when dental implants are planned, surgically placed and prosthetically loaded. Once the implants are loaded and in function, a supportive peri-implant care programme should be structured, including periodical assessment of peri-implant tissue health. If peri-implant mucositis or peri-implantitis are detected, appropriate treatments for their management must be rendered.” EFP reports.
