Peri-implant diseases are pathological infections in the tissues surrounding dental implants. A basic element in the prevention and treatment of these diseases is the removal of biofilm from the surface of implants. Various instruments have been proposed for the purpose of implant surface cleaning, and Anna Louropoulou assesses the effect of such instruments on titanium dental implant surfaces. She also develops guidelines for the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of peri-implant diseases and recommendations regarding the best instruments to use on dental implant surfaces.
