Free 1 CE credit

COURSE SUMMARY: The lecture will discuss the increasing concern over the large number of implant failures due to peri-implantitis. It will also discuss the critical role of patient daily oral hygiene in maintaining peri-implant health and which oral hygiene products are proving most effective in maintaining implant longevity. Attendees will also learn the critical importance of patients taking ownership of the health of their implants and their responsibility in maintaining them daily, at home. When patients understand their role in implant maintenance and are educated in best practices for home care, then a failed implant does not become “the dentist’s screw-up.”
