New website to educate patients on dental implants

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 ( 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.
