Presented by Susan Wingrove, RDH, BS
As dental professionals, we face challenges to assess, maintain and recommend home-care for dental implant patients. This course will reveal answers to the challenges of providing safe, effective implant maintenance, and peri-implantitis treatment. End the confusion with a comprehensive system for assessment, instrumentation, monitoring, and home-care recommendations based on ACP Clinical Practice Guidelines & Susan’s textbook; Peri-Implant Therapy for the Dental Hygienist: Clinical Guide to Maintenance and Disease Complications.
After completion of this course, attendees should be able to:
- Assess and monitor the health of dental implants with an evidence-based, five-step protocol.
- Understand the American College of Prosthodontics Guidelines for recall, maintenance, and homecare of patients with Implant-borne restorations.
- Provide safe implant maintenance including full arch fixed hybrids, home-care recommendations, and peri-implant disease treatment.
- Gain an awareness of implant complications, assessment, & protocols for cement implantitis prevention.
