I read a great discussion on OsseoNews on the need for aseptic technique for dental implants, entitled, Implant Surgery: Do I Completely Cover or Drape the Patient?, but that post was old and the comments are now closed.
I am wondering if anyone can refer me to studies that have shown aseptic technique is necessary for dental implant cases?
I was trained in a hospital setting where everything was done under aseptic technique.Â But now that I am in private practice I amÂ wondering if this is really necessary. I want to minimize the risk as much as possible, but I don’t want to be wasting time and materials when there is no statistically significant difference. Thoughts?
