Dental Implant TEAM Network: Dental Hygienist Track
Increasing numbers of patients are choosing dental implants for tooth replacement and dental hygienists are on the frontline of care. Many clinicians are unsure of appropriate steps of treatment and want to be ready to provide this care by gaining a better understanding of peri-implant therapy. Patients are just as unsure of what to do as daily supportive care to keep their implants healthy. This course is designed to break the barriers of implant care by developing skills of assessment and instrumentation as well as coaching patients on specific cleaning techniques. Learn principles of implant care, view clinical cases in various stages of health, and, through group discussion, develop a hygiene diagnosis and strategy for various levels of therapy and customize daily cleaning routines for patients.
