Implants are the standard of care for edentulous areas. A patient with implants is different from a patient with a natural dentition. Does the team understand the difference?

As more patients are seeking dental implants as viable restorative options, all members of the dental team should have a grasp of the role implants play in the maintenance of oral health. At times team members can be confused by the process and how implants differ from natural teeth. To maintain optimum health of the patient and the implant, team members need to understand how the patient and the dental professional can maintain the implant from the beginning of the implant process through its many components. Join in for a jam-packed overview of the implant process.

– Discuss the role of implants in the maintenance of oral health
– Categorize implant types and components
– Identify contraindications and criteria for implant success including surgery and prosthetics
– Understand and communicate the importance of post-treatment recare
– Summarize implant evaluation and maintenance protocols
