The mucositis around implants combined with low adherence to a protocol of oral hygiene at home, increases the risk of peri-implantitis. (5th ITI Concensus Conference). Thank SilverPlug, the mucosytis decreases drastically. Healthier gums are more efficient to prevent peri-implantitis.
In the world 70% of implants is sealed with teflon, 20% with cotton and 10% with other inadequate materials.
The use of inadequate materials to seal the implant tunnel is responsible for the persistence of bacteria which provoke perimplantitis and very serious systemic diseases. The use of material specially designed and certified for the seal of the implant tunnel, protects your implants from perimplantitis thus avoiding any legal implication to the doctor for using inappropriate materials.
