Why attend this course on implant maintenance?
It is of the utmost importance that the oral health status of the implant patient is reviewed on a regular basis. Hygienists, Therapists and Dentists need to monitor the health of tissues for complications such as per-implantitis and peri-implant mucositis which is important in the long term success of the implant treatment. Additional complications such as the risk of bone loss may also occur, due to the lack of periodontal ligament support from the lack of implant maintenance.
This course aims to empower the dental team with the confidence and knowledge to recognise, monitor and treat peri-implant disease.
What will I learn about implant maintenance?
The course will cover the core aspects of monitoring, assessment and tests to determine the oral health of the implant patient.
At the end of the course you will be able to:
- Understand the components and different implant types.
- Identify and modify the risk factors for the health of the peri-implant tissues.
- Identify the differences in periodontal diseases and peri-implant diseases.
- Diagnose peri-implant disease.
- Use evidence-based guidelines to help develop practice protocols for monitoring and maintaining dental implants.
- Use evidence-based guidelines to help develop practice protocols for managing and treating peri-implant disease.
- Have hands-on experience of correcting probing and debridement techniques.
- Develop further understanding of referral pathways and when to refer.
Candidates completing the course will be awarded an eCPD certificate fulfilling GDC learning outcomes A, B and C.

I left the course with new ideas and protocols to update the rest of the team at my practice and have gained an improved confidence in my abilities to provide the best service and care for our patients and support the rest of the dental team.”
Would highly recommend the implant maintenance course for Hygienists. It was delivered by a professional, welcoming team of speakers. A very well organised course with lots of hands on experience. I feel so much more confident maintaining my patients with implants.”
