Implant Success: Getting to the root of the matter

Thank you to our current and new members who attended the online seminar on June 10th. Dr. Nico Geurs shared with us the clinical features of peri-implant conditions. We also learned about the opportunity to participate in the Implant Registry Study launched recently.

If you missed the live session, the recorded video is now available on our YouTube channel.

COVID-19 & Tooth Fractures

Stress and isolation driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and the continued emergence of variants have affected mental health. Still, dentists anecdotally report that this is also taking a toll on oral health. They say that pandemic-related stress has increased bruxism and clenching, increasing tooth and restoration fractures. We want to hear from you!

Upcoming Studies

Dental Implant Registry

The Dental Implant Registry Study is now enrolling dental practitioners to join the study.

Practitioners and patients with dental implants will participate in this prospective cohort study to create an implant registry and investigate the success of implant therapy over 3 years, as well as the rate of prosthetic and implant complications. 

If you are interested in dental implants and place prosthesis after the implants, you may be eligible to participate. 

Post-Operative Pain - POPS

Recruitment for the POPS study continues and participating practitioners enjoy the study. 


“Joining the network was a way to try to connect with other practitioners and further our knowledge about current topics like the Post Op Pain study I’m in now,” said Mike Jensen, DMD from Mill Plain Dental Center in Vancouver, WA. When asked why he joined the POPS study, Dr. Jensen added, “I hope it will provide some added information about how well different combo’s of pain meds work and how long our patients are symptomatic. [This is] pretty useful knowledge.”


If you are interested in pain management after potentially painful dental procedures, you may be eligible to participate.
