About
The use of dental implants has revolutionised dental treatment however, are you prepared to identify the signs and symptoms of possible implant failure even before the implant is placed?
 
Whilst dental implants have revolutionised dentistry they have not come without their own set of problems. That is why a comprehensive and collaborative approach to implant placement and care involving all key stakeholders is paramount. Many complications can occur with implants and can present early after insertion or sometimes years later. These complications could be preventable by following proper implant placement and maintenance guidelines and working cooperatively as a team in the best interests of the patient.
 
This interactive presentation will arm you with the latest research and tools to educate your collaborative team of dentists, hygienists/OHTs and patients on the best way to care for implants even before they are placed. Creating a preventive partnership will dramatically increase the success of your implants and your practice.

Moreover, there are few things more rewarding in dentistry than restoring our patients' teeth and smile with implants.

Incorporating the scientifically backed gold standard of implant maintenance gives your patients every chance to have a lifetime solution that keeps them coming back as happy patients.

Join one of Australia’s leading authorities on implant maintenance, disease prevention and periodontal therapy. The principles and techniques covered will be directly applicable in your implant practice making this webinar essential viewing for all implantologists.
