The implant is restored, now what?

Tracy Anderson Butler National Director Hygiene Education Straumann USA, CRDH, MFT

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 patient as a trusted mentor often recognizes the dental hygienist and a go-to once a patient faces treatment options.  This course emphasizes the hygienist’s role in pre-, intra- and post-treatment to minimize infection and potential complications.   This presentation will review current literature on instrumentation as well as sterilization of implant instruments used in hygiene maintenance appointment.  Participants will learn key elements to effective case presentation for the dental implant patient and develop a clear protocol to recognize candidates.

Participants will learn:

  • Identify basics of implant types and components.
  • Understand the importance of recare for the implant patient.
  • Communicate the importance of regular post-operative care
  • Understand the current literature on proper instrumentation
  • Create decision tree to evaluate health and disease around dental implants
