Keith Rossein, DDS. (view profile)
Duration: 3 Hours
Approximately 28 million Americans are without teeth. On average, Americans 45 to 75 have only half their teeth, and 75 million Americans are missing 2 to 3 teeth. These statistics are not pretty. Given the 90% success rate of implants, their greater stability, comfort, and ability to inhibit the process of bone resorption, dental implants have become one our best options for patients wanting a healthy, attractive smile.
This course helps prepare you to provide service to implant patients by enhancing home care and office maintenance. Among the issues it covers are the gingival, connective tissue and bone relationships to dental implants, causative factors of peri-implantitis, factors for long-term clinical success, maintenance protocol, procedures for assessing implant health, and oral hygiene products and home care techniques for implant patients.
