Successful dental implant treatment relies on a systematic approach to treatment planning. Care must be taken to properly assess and select the patient for this type of treatment to ensure that the treatment will be successful and that the patient’s expectations will be met.
This lecture will aim to provide an overview of all aspects considered in a comprehensive implant assessment. It will enable the general practitioner to perform a good clinical assessment and it will provide the knowledge to assess risks and complications that should be discussed with the patient prior to implant treatment.
If you are keen to provide implant treatment yourself then knowing how to assess and plan a case properly is imperative.
