Implant Survival: It’s in Your Hands

Friday October 21, 2022 – 1:30pm – 4:30pm

Outline:

The fastest growing area of dentistry is implantology. We know that dental implants have a high success rate, but complications can and do occur. Are you prepared to identify the signs and symptoms of implant failure?

This interactive seminar will arm you with the latest research and tools you need to educate your clients on the importance of maintenance and self-care to protect their implants and their investment. The majority of the responsibility for maintaining implants is assigned to the dental hygienist and the client. Creating a preventive partnership will dramatically increase the success of their implants and your practice.

Take-home tools and skills:

  • Learn to take AIM –Assess, Identify and Monitor –as a critical part of implant care
  • Examine risk factors that can affect the success of implants and how to detect early problems such as implantitis
  • Understand the implications of implant-induced caries
  • Using an evidence-based approach and case studies, address why implants fail
  • Review implant maintenance protocols and how to develop a self-care program with systems and products to help combat implant failure
