There is no doubt that implants provide successful and predictable treatment for tooth replacement. However, the importance of prevention, proper oral hygiene, and implant maintenance is of utmost importance for long-term success.
According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, more than 3 million Americans have one or more implants and that number is increasing by 500,000 a year. These statistics translate to dental professionals providing more than 12 million periodontal implant maintenance procedures annually.
With all those implants to look after, you’ll want to be sure to take advantage of this months’ Special Topic Mastermind Webinar entitled, The Diagnosis & Treatment of Peri-Implant Diseases & Maintenance of Dental Implants, with our guest Dr. Travis Whitley of UNC School of Dentistry at Chapel Hill.
Until next month, stay inspired through ongoing learning!
