Clinical Prognosis

The patient’s wishes of having a fixed long-term solution were met and he has had no issues since 2009. There is a regular hygiene programme set up for him and he attends for 3 monthly hygiene appointments and on a 12 monthly basis for complete examination which includes x-rays of the implants and full periodontal assessment including six-point periodontal charting. We hope with this continued regime and good home maintenance regime this will stay the same.
