Implant Care Practitioner Training Program: Level 2
Evidences about the oral systemic link declare an adequate dentition as medically necessary for quality of life. According to the American College of Prosthodontics, more than 36 million Americans are edentulous with approximately 23 million Americans being completely edentulous. Tooth loss is a debilitating, life altering, and irreversible disease. A hot topic in contemporary medicine is the health professions need to prepare for a growing population. Areas of particular interests include dentistry, older patients, and edentulism. One concern is that as the population grows so will their susceptibility to oral disease and the concluding, tooth loss.
Advances in restorative dentistry have revolutionized our ability to revive even the hopeless dentition. Implant dentistry has improved the lives of millions of edentate people restoring facial appearance, speech, and eating ability. With such therapeutic value, dental implants have become the standard of care for the replacement of missing teeth. Consider that with a growing population, dental hygienists need to become educated about the possible dental implant complications and their origins. Also needing close study is how to safely and effectively meet the dental hygiene needs of the edentulous patient with advanced implant dentistry.
This course is one of the most comprehensive programs on this topic discussing a range of complications in implant dentistry, prevention strategies, diagnostic, and management modalities, Participants will learn through a multi-disciplinary perspective reviewing surgical, restorative, laboratory, and maintenance phases of implant dentistry as well as solutions to complications.
