4.1 Review visit
The review visit with the patient should take place approximately 2 weeks after insertion of the final prosthesis. The assessment of the patient’s experience with the new fixed dental prosthesis (FDP) and the necessity of potential adjustments are an important part of this treatment step. In the case of a screw-retained bridge, you can replace the temporary filling material with a permanent one if you and your patient are satisfied. Furthermore, the review visit gives you the opportunity to reinforce optimal oral hygiene and care of the implant-borne restoration with your patient.
Be able to examine and assess the condition of the FDP, the implants and the surrounding soft tissue.
Be able to assess the patient’s oral hygiene compliance.
Be able to close the screw access holes permanently in the screw-retained FDP.
Be able to define individual recall intervals for the patient.
