Implant Maintenance/Biofilm Management

The Implant is Restored, Now What? – Janis Spiliadis

Dental implants are now the standard of care for patients with missing teeth. As the number of cases increases, it is essential to communicate ideal dental care following implant placement. The dental hygienist is often recognized by the patient as a trusted mentor and a go-to once a patient faces treatment options. This course emphasizes the hygienist’s role in pre-, intra- and posttreatment to minimize infection and potential complications.

Evidence based decision making including safety and efficacy of instruments used in maintenance will be discussed. This presentation will review current literature on instrumentation as well as biocompatibility of materials on titanium and zirconia surfaces.

Assessment and Early detection of Periodontal Disease – Janis Spiliadis

Oral health is a part of total health and early detection is key when treating any disease process particularly in the treatment of periodontal disease. Assessment is paramount increasing treatment options for patients and managing expectations. Collaboration among the entire dental team is essential to align a clear clinical philosophy with predictable treatment outcomes. Identifying candidates sooner than later to keep their dentistry and smile looking greater longer requires an increased level of communication by all members of the dental team. A highlight of this program will emphasize the true interdisciplinary approach between the specialist and restorative practice utilizing case review and evidence based treatment planning.
