1. _______________ is a major factor in determining long-term prognosis of the dental implant.
  1. The peri-implant disease process resembles periodontitis. The dental implant can be compromised if the titanium oxide layer of the implant is disrupted.
  1. Studies indicate that when multiple oral hygiene devices are prescribed at one time, the patient _______________.
  1. When using a manual brush the ____________ is the preferred toothbrushing method for dental implants.
  1. When cleaning a dental implant, interdental aid devices, including scalers and periodontal probes, must be _______________.
  1. A mouthrinse containing _______________, aids in the fibroblastic attachment to implant surfaces.
  1. Currently, the success rate of dental implants has been reported in the scientific literature to be approximately _____%.
  1. Ultrasonic instrumentation should _______________ be used with dental implants.
  1. If an implant is displaying increased probing depths, bleeding, or other indications of the onset of failure, the clinician should _______________.
  1. A 30 second rinse of 0.12 percent concentration of chlorhexidine can inhibit _____ percent of the cultivable bacteria for approximately _____ hours.
  1. Today, the majority of dental implants being placed in dentistry are _______________.
  1. Additive surface modifications such as inorganic mineral coatings and biocoating with growth factors have been shown to produce better results for osseointegration. Subtractive processes may cause an increased ion leakage and increased adherence of macrophages resulting in subsequent bone resorption.
  1. One of the most critical factors in clinical assessment is the biologic connection between the implant and bone. Healthy bone is required for successful osseointegration and long-term dental implant success.
  1. Which region of the oral cavity is more complicated due to the quality of bone and the anatomy of structures that are near the proposed implant site?
  1. Peri-implant soft tissues are different in structure and clinical appearance to periodontal soft tissues. Dental implants do not have a periodontal ligament or inserting collagen fibers.
  1. How would you describe healthy bone tissue?
  1. Peri-implant mucositis is an inflammatory change of the peri-implant soft tissues with no alveolar bone loss. Peri-implantitis is an inflammatory response around an osseointegrated implant resulting in loss of soft tissue and bone.
  1. If bone is overheated or damaged during surgical preparation, it can become necrotic. A proper vascular supply and oxygen tension are needed for bone apposition.
  1. Which type of gingival tissue that develops during healing is a better outcome with dental implant longevity?
  1. With healthy tissues, the probing depth measurement will be approximately _____ mm higher above the bone level.
