ABSTRACT

Objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of oral hygiene education provided by dental hygienists in patients with dental implants. Methods: Data were obtained from a survey that involved 300 patients who had one or more dental implants. Based on the calculated sample size (n = 274), 300 questionnaires were used for further analyses. Results: The patients who received oral hygiene education had higher levels of satisfaction after dental implant surgery (p<0.05). Patients who had repeated educational sessions, in the form of interactive or hands-on sessions or lectures, with continuous feedback had higher scores for oral hygiene maintenance (p<0.05). Conclusions: This study indicated that patients who received oral hygiene education, in the form of interactive or hands-on sessions or lectures, with continuous post-educational feedback were better at maintaining oral hygiene.
