Presented by Dr Sal Shahidi
Originally broadcast at 16:10 PM AEST on Wednesday, 29 April, 2020
The replacement of missing teeth with dental implants is a common treatment option, attractive for dentists and sought-after by patients. The number of dental implants placed worldwide is increasing continuously. Unfortunately, the increasing number of implants is accompanied by an increasing number of complications including peri-implant diseases, peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis.
Join Periodontist Dr Sal Shahidi for a webinar answering your most common questions related to patients who have dental implants with a focus on implant neglect during COVID-19 and the resulting complications.
Dr Shahidi will discuss:

- Patient compliance - how to communicate to patients during the COVID-19 crisis to ensure they are maintaining peri-implant health.
