(KY06) – The Rationale “Why” We Want Dental Implants For Our Patients; It’s Not Just Production
Course Length: 2 hours
Target Audience: The Entire Team!
This powerful 2-hour lecture will take you back behind the scenes to understand at a deeper level why dental implants are the best option for tooth replacement therapy. The last time your patient asked you how long dental implants have been around for, what did you tell them? And when your patient questioned when was the first dental implant placed and how long do dental implants last, what do you say to your patients?
Would it not be empowering for your entire team to know the facts? This lecture will review the history of dental implants and why today, dental implants should be considered the ideal option for tooth replacement therapy. We will discuss the pros and cons of placing a dental implant and a that of a bridge or also known as a fixed partial denture. People hearing what they want to hear may also be known as “selective hearing.” Your brain chooses what to listen to based on what you’re trying to do or what you are thinking about. We may think we have our patient’s complete attention, but do we really have their full attention? We will review how what we say can be misunderstood as a warranty. We will together discuss the best ways to inform our patients of the longevity of dental implants and the patient’s responsibility post-operative. We will review the different levels of failure and why documentation is so vital.
