Implant maintenance for hygienists
16th October 2015
Carisbrooke Dental Practice was pleased to run its first Implant Maintenance course for Dental Hygienists on Friday 2nd October 2015.
The course hosted by Dr. Neil Millington, Dr Jose Zurdo and Hilary Brown, covered important tasks that dental hygienists must undertake to ensure the health of dental implants. This included information regarding ‘pocketing around implants’, the correct instrumentation to use and also how to spot perioimplantitis, and practical steps to help treat it.
Lasting for over two hours, the course gave dental hygienists the chance to ask questions and even see a practical demonstration by Hilary Brown.
Hygienists attending the course found the “presentation to be very informative – it was very interesting and contained valuable information” and enjoyed spending time with Hilary to pick up some top tips.
Given the success of this course, we will hold another hygienist specific event in the near future. If you would like to attend or find out more please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
