Practicing Implant Dentistry in the 21st Century

Jan. 14, 2021 at 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Subject: 690 Implants
Credits: 1.5
Thursday, January 14 @ 7:30pm-9:00pm CST
Audience:  Everyone
Fee: Free


This presentation will go over several treatment methods for implant prosthetic patients. When a patient meets the dentist for the first time, the patient’s initial impression is extremely vital to acceptance. This presentation will review an elementary and detailed discussion with a new patient while understanding the patient’s needs. Patients do not necessarily understand informed consent; therefore, both auxiliaries and dentists should ask patients to verbalize what the practitioner explained to them. Implant hygiene will be discussed — both what to do immediately following the dentist’s procedures and at home. This course will also discuss procedures such as direct pickup of the implant overdenture prosthesis. 

Learning Objectives:

• Learn an informed-consent procedure that is both patient- and practitioner-friendly.
• Demonstrate an implant in office hygiene protocol for Practitioners. 
• Teach patients Homecare specific for their type of prosthesis.
• Know how to prevent peri-implantitis from a hygiene perspective.
• Understand hygiene procedures before impressions and implant abutment pickup procedures.
