Dental implants are becoming a standard of care for our patients with missing teeth. As dental hygienists it is important to recognize the trust relationship we have with our patients when recommending implants, communicating the importance of post-operative maintenance, and home care. This CE webinar emphasizes the hygienists’ role in pre-, intra-, and post-op treatment to facilitate the minimization of infection and complications. The current literature on instrumentation will be reviewed and proper instrumentation and the use of optimum equipment to achieve optimum results will also be discussed.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, the student will
• Identify types and components of implants
• Understand the periodontal apparatus and osseous integration
• Communicate the importance of regular post-operative care
• Understand the current literature on instrumentation
• Create a decision tree for implant patients
• Identify risks and complications that may compromise treatment success   ( disclaimer , AGD PACE Statement )
