In this age of Internet and social media advertising, many patients call your office wanting to know the price of specific treatments. You don’t want to be boxed into a corner since you don’t know what the patient needs clinically, right? Hold on a minute. Perio-Implant Advisory Editorial Director Scott Froum, DDS, has some insight for you in his clinical tip of the month. 

This month's clinical tip from the editor: 'Help! My implant fell out!'

Jul 14, 2015

What should I do?” Dr. Scott Froum, editorial director of Perio-Implant Advisory, suggests you tell the patient to send you a picture via text of the “implant that has fallen out.” Nine times out of 10 it will be a healing abutment usually caused by noncompliance with postop instructions to have a soft food diet rather than the implant.
