Aim and objectives: The aim of this study is to evaluate the patients' gingival health around oral implants. This helps in assessing patients oral hygiene and also motivates the dental implant practitioner to plan a short module to educate the patients on their dental hygiene at a personalized level. Materials and Methods: 40 patients, both male and female were viewed and assessed for their gingival health post implant therapy at the Department of Oral Implantology, Saveetha Dental College and Hospital, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India during the year of 2015. From the total number of patients viewed, 11 male patients were assessed after 1 year of implant therapy, 18 male patients after 2 year of implant therapy, 6 female patients after 1 year implant therapy and 5 female patients after 2 years of therapy. The mean age of male and female patients are 45 years and 50 years respectively. An autoclavable plastic probe was used to check the gingival condition. The Mombelli Indices were used to assess the marginal mucosal condition. Results: 39 patients including showed Mombelli score of 0. However, only one male patient showed Mombelli score of 1. No score of 2 and 3 were observed during first and second years of follow-up. Conclusion: About 97.4% of all patients were found to maintain good gingival health (Mombelli score of 0) around dental implants in the first two years after treatment. Further evaluation are required to determine the gingival status after longer durations.
