As part of our educational initiatives, we are proud to announce the launch of “Let’s talk oral health!”, a comprehensive series of webinars exploring home-based oral care from the perspective of several dental specialties. Each webinar will feature two relevant speakers in the field for an open and informal conversation of 45-60 minutes. The series is aimed at oral care professionals and will cover the main topics professionals face every day: periodontology, orthodontics, cancer therapy, special needs dentistry, pediatric dentistry, and implantology.
From April to October 2022, each session will take place during the first week of the month, free and open to everyone (previous registration required) and will be available on-demand. Also, downloadable ppt slides with the key takeaways of the webinar will be available too.
The keys to prevention and treatment of peri-implant diseases
The 6th episode of our webinar series will explore how home-based oral care is the key component to prevent peri-implantitis.
Peri-implantitis has been a growing predicament for years and yet, no firm consensus on its treatment has been agreed upon in the professional community. In such instance, prevention of the disease remains the mainstay and, as for periodontal conditions, resides in the patient’s daily oral care. In this webinar, Prof. Roos-Jansåker and Ms. Susan Wingrove will discourse on the basics of peri-implantitis and focus on the effective non-surgical treatments, including the patient’s role and how the professional can accompany the patient in this quest to prevent peri-implantitis or its relapse.
