Practical guidance for dental hygienists on how to maintain dental implants in daily practice
The newly revised Second Edition of Peri-Implant Therapy for the Dental Hygienist provides a comprehensive guide to biofilm-focused assessment, maintenance, and home care for the prevention of long-term implant complications. The book offers clinical protocols ranging from single titanium and ceramic implant-borne restorations to the fixed full arch final prosthesis. The text also discusses pre-surgical regenerative procedures, implant placement, and patient communication to support hygienists and other dental professionals in talking to patients about implant dentistry.
The book is a valuable clinically oriented resource guide for dental professionals seeing patients with titanium and ceramic dental implants. This new edition introduces readers to new information on ceramic implant instrumentation and ‘Mastering the Arch’, as well as detailed information on how to remove, assess, and provide maintenance for full arch prostheses patients. A new companion website provides dental instructor materials, review questions and answers, lesson plans, videos, PowerPoint slides, skills evaluations, and learning objectives. The book includes:
Useful clinical photographs, illustrations, and patient cases to demonstrate the concepts discussed throughout the book
Researched protocols for assessment, professional in-office maintenance, and biofilm-focused patient home care to meet all the peri-implant therapy challenges
Updated classification, guidelines, and treatments for peri-implant disease
Technology and resources for prevention of peri-implantitis and complications that can be prevented with early detection and patient awareness
Ideal for dental hygienists and dental hygiene and dental students, Peri-Implant Therapy for the Dental Hygienist is also an essential reference for any dental professional seeking a one-stop resource for maintaining dental implants and managing their complications.
