Implants and the dental landscape
Dental implants have changed the landscape of dentistry for many patients. Patients previously would suffer with edentulous areas that could not be restored and endure the consequences of lack of function, aesthetics, speech, and health that these edentulous areas caused. Over the past few decades, implant dentistry has grown to be a $1.5 million business in the United States alone. Implants have enhanced the lives of so many patients. Hygienists play an important role in the education of patients regarding implants, initially proposing treatments, discussing surgical and prosthetic options, and providing professional maintenance care while instructing patients on home care options. Are you maintaining your education regarding the rapidly evolving implant landscape?
