Dental Implants Uncovered: Prevention, Detection and Intervention

Presented By:  Shavonne R. Healy, RDH, BSDH. ICP & Melissa A. Obrotka, RDH, BBAOM, ICP

The dental implant surgical and restorative markets are forecasted to reach 12.32 billion by 2021. Such substantial industry growth indicates that many dental hygienists will encounter patients with dental implants within their clinical practice. With the increased incidence in peri-implant diseases, studies have indicated the maintenance phase to be the most important aspect for long term success. While protocols for implant maintenance remain unclear, peri-implant disease therapies can very well depend on what is in your clinical armamentarium or may be limited to your state’s dental hygiene scope of practice. At RDH Innovations we believe that strategies for implant maintenance can vary and still be achievable with the safe and correct use of equipment. This course offers a multifaceted approach to the non-surgical management of peri-implant diseases and will conclude with a hands-on workshop demonstrating oral hygiene practices for an implant care plan that is realistic for the patient.

 

Upon completion of this course, the participant will:

  • Understand etiology and identify factors associated with peri-implant diseases.
  • Implement Froum and Rosen’s peri-implantitis classification system.
  • Understand implant surface characteristics and prosthesis design.
  • Discuss decontamination protocols and combination procedures for the management of peri-implant diseases.

Reducing Failures: Maintenance as the cornerstone of implant therapy

Presented By:  Michelle Strange, RDH, BSH, MSDH

In today’s dentistry, we are giving patients a viable option for tooth replacement, but we must remember: treatment of dental implants does not end after the surgical or restorative phases. Creating a maintenance program that is tailored to the patient and their dental implant is key.  Depending on the patient’s motivation, dexterity, physical capabilities, and type of prosthetic, there can be many ways to maintain their dental implant at-home and in- office. Understanding the latest research and products that will help create long-term success for your patients is essential.

 

Objectives

  1. Define peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis looking specifically at survival rates vs success rates
  2. Explain the steps of assessing dental implants after placement and during maintenance visits
  3. Determine the frequency of implant maintenance
  4. Define patient-centered care and how evidence-based dentistry affects that
  5. Explain the importance of patient education
  6. List the types of implant scalers and when they are used
  7. List new protocols for in-office implant maintenance
  8. Describe the ways to clean each type of implant and components
  9. Determine the correct products for at-home maintenance with a patient-centered focus
  10. Describe factors to be considered during the treatment planning processes

Michelle has been a clinician in dentistry since 2000 and currently is a practicing hygienist, surgical assistant, speaker, volunteer, educator in a dental hygiene program, lead clinical educator for TePe Oral Health Care, Inc., and podcast co-host for “A Tale of Two Hygienists”. She is a self-proclaimed dental nerd and sees the dental profession as not only her forever

career path but her hobby.  With a Master’s in Dental Hygiene education and a belief in lifelong learning, Michelle hopes to continue to learn and grow within the dental profession and one day see the gap bridged between medical and dental. Her experience as a hygienist began in a periodontal and implant driven office and has gained much experience with the maintenance of dental implants. Her passion is helping patients be successful at home with a goal of better oral health with a patient-centered approach.

This course will raise confidence and empower you to embrace and employ the dental hygiene process of care for personal and professional success.
