Description

The number of osseointegrated implants is increasing and we all in daily practice encounter patients who have had them placed. Healthy peri-implant soft and hard tissues are essential for the stability and survival of dental implants. The role of the dental therapist, hygienist and clinician is paramount in ensuring that disease processes can be recognised early and dealt with accordingly. Patients are often unaware of the importance of regular peri-implant maintenance and the importance of this in early treatment of dental implant disease. The presentation will outline how to recognise healthy implant tissues and what clinical signs and symptoms indicate a disease process around the implants. It will look at the current protocol for when to treat and when to refer these patients as well as a protocol for use during the maintenance appointment.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES
