NEW national standards on implant dentistry will be published next year by the Faculty of General Dental Practice UK.

The FGDP(UK) already publishes Training Standards in Implant Dentistry, which is used by the GDC to define the training that should be undertaken to carry out implant dentistry in the UK and the standards which should be met by training courses.

The new standards are due to be published in the “second half” of 2018 and the evidence-graded recommendations will be categorised using the Faculty’s ABC (aspirational, basic, conditional) notation.

Professor Cemal Ucer, editor of Standards in Implant Dentistry, said: "Delivery of satisfactory dental implant treatment, and its long-term success and maintenance, requires complex and invasive surgical and restorative procedures using a variety of highly specialised products, biomaterials and equipment. Constantly emerging new materials, techniques and treatment modalities can give rise to variance in the standard of treatment between practitioners and institutions, and we are developing Standards in Implant Dentistry to enable dentists to optimise their quality of patient care and reduce variations in treatment outcomes.

"Based on a systematic review of the evidence and critical appraisal of the benefits and harms of all treatment options, our best practice guidelines should be seen to set national standards on how patients who are candidates for dental implant treatment should be assessed and treated."
