Technology has allowed dental implants to be more accessible to patients, which can improve their oral health. As primary oral health care practitioners, clinicians play a pivotal role in maintaining implants. Having fundamental knowledge of implant components, the mechanism and debridement materials are central in achieving comprehensive patient-centred care. This lecture explores the concepts of Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) and how to incorporate it with the care module process (assess, diagnose, plan, implement, and evaluate), ADPIE to successfully and comprehensively maintaining implants and overall health.
