Peri-implant pathology risk assessment
Assess the risk of peri-implant pathology
This test, developed by a research group led by Dr. de Araújo Nobre and validated in 20193, is designed to:
- Help clinicians predict the risk of peri-implant pathology, up to 5 years post-surgery
- Provide recall regimen recommendations for a particular case
This assessment should be performed after one year of follow-up, in order to exclude early implant failure, and can be repeated at follow-up visits for continuous evaluation of peri-implant pathology risk.
