Implants are no longer the occasional means of replacing missing teeth. Whether they are used in conjunction with removable or fixed prosthetics, they are now the number one tool that dentists have to restore a dentition with one or multiple missing teeth. But how does one assess whether an implant has successfully integrated and is ready to restore? And more importantly how does one assess whether an implant with a restoration is doing its job and is clinically viable? In this comprehensive course, Dr. Carl Misch goes into detail on how to evaluate the success of an implant in your patient’s mouth. He describes what to look for clinically when doing patient exams to make this assessment with certainty. Both hygienists and dentists can go through a list of criteria and evaluate the results and know what steps to take depending on the results. Many examples of successes and failures are shown in this presentation from Dr. Misch’s case files to help one understand this important evaluation process. In addition, Dr. Misch describes how to avoid the most common reasons that implants fail.
This course is a must see for clinicians in dental practices that not only place or restore implants, but also for those dental practices that have patients that already have had implants placed. In other words, this information is important for every dental practice.
