Course Description

Implant Maintenance - Perio & Prosthetics CPD 6.5 Hours Ongoing care - early detection and management of complications. What is it, aim Undertake appropriate ongoing care of implants Detect early signs of biological and mechanical complications Categorising cases according to risk and severity Instigate or refer for appropriate practical long term management Course Outline Definition of implant and superstructure success, survival and failure, biological complications Mechanical complications Advantages of early detection of complications Practical treatment protocols for cases at different levels of risk Implants and their restorations need ongoing monitoring and care. The implants are potentially at risk from peri-implant inflammation leading to bone loss and the restorations from damage from occlusal forces. The successful implant with sound peri-implant mucosa, stable marginal bone and sound restoration may go on indefinitely. On the other hand, an implant affected by peri-implant inflammation and advancing bone loss or a chipped, loosened restoration are at best surviving at at worst destined for failure. Early detection of biological andor mechanical complications can minimize and contain the problem.
