2015 Implant Courses

Dental Implants and Soft Tissue Management - 23 May 2015

Course overview

Dental implants are a rapidly expanding component of dental practice. Once placed, dental implants require ongoing maintenance to ensure health and longevity of these restorations. Poor oral hygiene can result in disease of the peri-implant tissues such as peri-muscositis and peri-implantis.

This course is designed to meet the significant void that presently exists within the dental community on how to identify potential problems, how to deal with them appropriately, and how to manage basis problems associated with peri-implant tissues. In most cases per-implant disease can be avoided through proper oral hygiene instruction, the use of specific oral hygiene products and a well-structured maintenance program.

Course topics
  • Biology of the peri-implant tissues
  • Commonly encountered problems around dental implants
  • Use of oral hygiene techniques and products to enhance peri-implant health
  • Considerations in implant treatment planning
  • Discussion on prosthetic design and implant abutment selection on peri-implant tissues
  • Understanding abutment connection and crown cementation
  • Structured maintenance programs for patients restored with dental implants
Learning objectives
  • To discuss and understand dental implant components
  • To provide knowledge of the implant-host interaction
  • Discuss assessment of peri-implant tissues
  • Understand management of complications associated with implants
  • Enhance maintenance procedures
  • To individualise referral patterns and home care for the patient
