When a dental implant is needed in the esthetic zone, several challenges exist, both for the restorative dentist and for the surgeon. Once the initial surgery is completed and the crown is in place, special care and monitoring must be performed which is different from that required for teeth. Effective maintenance with the dental hygienist is key for long-term success. This course is designed for the whole dental team and will cover what makes esthetic zone implants uniquely challenging and how to best care for them and all implants.

Who will benefit from this course?

Restorative dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, and staff who are in practices that place, restore, or maintain dental implants.
