Completion of Module 2 or equivalent and/or prior experience with implants is required.
Module 3 is designed to allow the student-doctor to place a dental implant, under the supervision of the instructor, that may or may not be in an ideal site. The student-doctor must first demonstrate proficiency in surgical skills, from flap design through closure as taught in Module 2, and the desire to refine those skills in a clinical setting.
This three day hands-on course is for doctors and their TEAMS. It includes performing clinical exercises, observing, and performing live surgery on their own patients. The participating doctor will increase their knowledge of implant dentistry to help determine which cases he/she can surgically and prosthetically manage in their own practice. Adjunctive surgical procedures, such as bone grafting, bicortical ridge splitting, and site preparation using osteotomes, will be introduced. Understanding the participant’s abilities thereby maximizes appropriate case selection as it relates to the participant’s skill level.
Didactic instruction on day 1 is followed by two days of “hands on” surgical training. The student-doctor is strongly encouraged to provide his/her own patient. This allows the attendee to follow the patient through completion of the restoration. Course participants are required to submit patient records (as outlined in the AIM Records Protocol) 30 days prior to the course for evaluation, treatment plan verification and a surgical fee estimate. Participation in live surgeries suggests clinical attire for the second and third days. Bringing loupes and accompanying illumination is recommended.
