MasterMind- Implant Care Practitioner- Level 1
November 2, 2019 - November 3, 2019
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 implant dentistry within their clinical practice. With the increased incidence of 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, the role of the dental hygienist in the preservation of peri-implant tissues has been recognized internationally. A 2015 consensus report published by the 10th European Consensus Conference (EuCC) addressing peri-implant inflammation acknowledged that detection and prevention of peri-implant diseases is contingent upon the diagnostic and therapeutic skill of the clinician.
This multifaceted hands-on program will explore the fundamentals of laser science, periodontal endoscopy, subgingival powder streaming with glycine powder and instrumentation in the non-surgical treatment of peri-implant and periodontal diseases. Working with simulation exercises, this workshop is designed to build confidence and gain clinical understanding for dental hygienists’ in the delivery of advanced treatment protocols.
