 Using the “IT’S ABOUT TIME” program, learn to hand sharpen with a ceramic stone

  • Choices for routine maintenance sharpening of scalers and curettes
  • What’s new with instrumentation
  • Strategies to assist you in obtaining the necessary instrumentation that you need to practice efficiently

 Should I probe, scale and/or ultrasonic around an implant? How do I recognize implant health versus disease? Can I treat the infection or should the patient be referred to a specialist? These are just a few of the questions you may have regarding dental implants. This course emphasizes the proper maintenance of implants and the products specifically designed for dental implant care by both the dental professional and the patient.

Recent scientific evidence on plaque biofilms is impacting the prevention and treatment of peri-implant diseases. While newer dental implant systems have overcome many factors that contributed to past implant failures, complications still exist. Etiological factors contributing to implant failure and current treatment interventions relating to dental implants will be discussed. This information will promote a better collaboration of the dental professional and the patient, which will ensure long-term success of the dental implant.
