Dr. Babak Shokati, Our Staff Prosthodontist giving a lecture on dental implants in Toronto Implant Academy
Food entrapment around dental implants have been a major problem for many of the patients who have replaced their missing teeth with dental implant crowns and implant bridges. The problem can be so severe that some of the patient regret why they had the implant treatment done due to the frustration cased by food getting stuck around their implant prostheses.
In this lecture for general dental practitioners, Dr. Shokati goes through the implant prosthesis designs which can reduce the risk and severity of this problem. The key point is a unique and new strategy observed by surgical, laboratory and oral hygiene interventions to minimize the penetration on food debries between the implant abutment and the premucosal (gum) tissue.
