A dedicated website with a downloadable booklet to educate patients about implants and related treatments has been launched by The Association of Dental Implantology (ADI).
Patients accessing the website (www.consideringdentalimplants.co.uk) are provided a basic overview of the implant process, along with a glossary and illustrations to explain terms and procedures, and FAQs.
The website can be viewed on a handheld device or computer and patients can also request a free copy of the leaflet – Considering Dental Implants? – to be sent to their home address.
MDDUS advises that the website and booklet may be a helpful adjunct in educating patients but reminds members that it remains the responsibility of the individual competent dental surgeon to ensure patient consent for implant treatment is fully informed.
