The Implant Care Protocol – A Critical Update

About the Course:

It has been eight years since Dr. Fritz and his team published the Supportive Periodontal Implant Maintenance Protocol, which has been shared and implemented in dental practices and hygiene colleges across the globe. With the exciting new periodontal and peri-implant classifications published simultaneously by the AAP and EFP they felt it was necessary to revisit the implant maintenance protocol to better reflect the new information and technologies available today. This lecture is focused on the best evidence to prevent peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis using a systematic approach which is personalized for the patient. This critical update has eliminated several steps from the former algorithm and replaced them with innovative approaches generated from new concepts of peri-implant health.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define and identify peri-implant health, peri-implant mucositis, and peri-implantitis based on the new periodontal and peri-implant classification system (2018).

  • Identify treatment of peri-implant disease.
  • Understand the co-dependent relationship between implantology and periodontology.
