What is peri implant tissue?
Peri-implant tissues are those that occur around osseointegrated dental implants. They are divided into soft and hard tissue compartments. The soft tissue compartment is denoted “peri-implant mucosa” and is formed during the wound healing process that follows implant/abutment placement.
What is the difference between an overdenture and an implant-supported denture?
