Lecture Topic:
Disrupt, Debride, Detoxify: Implant Maintenance, Home-Care, & Disease Treatment


To prevent peri-implant complications, professional in-office assessment, maintenance, and home-care recommendations are vital. For long-term implant success clinicians need to detect early signs of implant complications, diagnose any complications to provide early intervention and be able to provide peri-implant treatments. This course will follow the global healthy implant initiative for ceramic and titanium implants based on Susan’s Clinical White Paper: Long-term prevention of peri-implant complications and textbook: Peri-Implant Therapy for the Dental Hygienist: First & Second Editions.

Educational Objectives:

1.Learn the current research protocols, tools, and treatments for long-term prevention of peri-implant complications.
2.Detect: Put into practice biofilm identification, five-step protocol to assess & monitor dental implants.
3.Diagnose: Understand early intervention guidelines based on American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) peri-implant soft and hard deficiencies.
4.Treatment: Biofilm-focused titanium and ceramic implant maintenance for all forms of implant-borne restorations / prostheses and early complication treatments.
