Question 4: A. B. C. ANSWER

Maintenance: Plaque and Peri-Implant Gingival Tissues. J Periodontol. Volume 66 Number 11 Pgs 962-964 – Nov 1995. Why did the attachment level (AL) scores at the initial measurements seem unusual?
They were high b/c the measurements were taken from the implant crest, which is located further incisally than the position of the typical CEJ. They were low b/c the measurements were taken from the implant crest, which is located further apically than the position of the typical CEJ. Nothing, they were normal. A
