Treatment guidelines

Post-placement

Key points

  • If prosthesis was placed on or soon after the day of implant surgery, review postoperative medications and tissue healing
  • Oral hygiene instructions and periodic maintenance are important for good long term prognosis
  • Oral hygiene aids might have to be modified to allow access
  • If applicable, the patient is instructed to remove the opposing prosthesis at night
  • Keep adjustments in the immediate post-placement period to a minimum in order to give the patient time to adapt to the new prosthesis
