If persistent biofilm removal were not there, Peri-implantitis would hit hard resulting a loss of the implant and the entire dental investment with it!
Proper cleaning is irreplaceable in order to avoid scratching a crown, abutment, or implant. A hygienist’s help might be pursued as they use special tools in the cleaning process made of implant-friendly material to clean implants thoroughly without causing any damages.
