Dental implantology as one of the most modern dental disciplines possesses numerous “touching zones” with periodontology. Periodontology is a dental specialty responsable for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the periodontal tissues or their substitutes, such as dental implants (i.e. peri-implant tissues) and is also concerned with the maintenance of the health, function and esthetics of these structures and tissues. For one successful endosseous-type dental implant, in addition to the osseointegration, is neccecary to achieve perimucosal seals of the various soft tissue layers adjacent to the implant surface. The presence of an adequate zone of attached keratinized periimplant gingiva, as a part of the periodoncium, may be essential for maintenance of peri-implant health, prevention of gingival recession, and establishment of stable levels of the connective tissue and alveolar bony attachments. That is why,a failure to obtain or maintain this perimucosal seal may result in loss of connective tissue adhesion, and implant loss. After the successful osseointegration of an endosseous dental implant, the health of the periimplant tissues and subsequent health and longevity of dental implants are dependent from the ability of the soft-tissue interface of the implantretained prosthesis to protect against repeated attacks from the bacteria of the dental plaque. It is important for clinicians to understand that there are both similarities and differences between the soft-tissue attachment of natural teeth and dental implants. Also one of the most important factors for the longevity of dental implants is adequate oral hygiene and the existence of periodontal health. Therefore, an inviolable rule to follow, is first to eliminate any disease in the periodontium before placement of dental implants.
