CE Opportunity for Dental Hygienists: Care of Dental Implants
Dental implants are now the standard of care for patients with missing teeth. As the number of cases increases, it is essential to communicate ideal dental care following implant placement. The importance of collaboration between the specialist and restorative practice is fundamental in professional care and long-term maintenance of dental implants.
This course emphasizes the hygienists’ role in pre-, intra- and post-treatment to minimize infection and potential complications. Evidence based decision making including safety and efficacy of instruments used in maintenance will be discussed. This presentation will review current literature on instrumentation as well as biocompatibility of materials on titanium and zirconia surfaces.
• Identify basics of implant types and components
• Understand biocompatibility of materials related to implant maintenance
• Understand the current literature on proper instrumentation and maintenance
• Develop decision tree to evaluate health and disease around dental implants
• Identify potential complications and risks in pre- and post-operative care
