The knowledge of how inflammatory periodontal destructive processes occur has been improved and expanded over the past years. New therapy approaches have been developed to complement mechanical therapy. These have themselves made major progress in terms of methodology and instruments. The contemporary demand for the preservation of tissue with regeneration potential, has led to the replacement of generous periodontal flap surgery with graceful, reconstructive and repairing methods that are capable of satisfying even the highest aesthetic standards.

The perfect anchoring of implants of the jawbone and peri-implant mucosa should be improved by the enhancements using plastic surgery methods. There are also processes in the mucous membrane and the peri-implant bone –caused by microbial biofilm – that can be compared to those in the marginal periodontium.

All periodontal therapeutic measures and implants, without exception, require personal and professional follow-up care. The daily oral hygiene includes mechanical, hydrodynamic and chemical aids, in accordance with the patient’s manual abilities.
