- Introduction to Dental Implants
November 21, 2019 - November 23, 2019
8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Prerequisites: No prior experience with implants is required.
Course Objective: To gain a broad understanding of the scope of academic, clinical, surgical, and business skills required to integrate dental implant placement into a dental practice and motivate the participants to do so.
Course Description: This course is designed for the student-doctor and TEAM who wants to introduce themselves to both the surgical and restorative phases of dental implants. Patient selection, site selection, treatment planning, critical anatomic structures, and surgical placement protocols for implant systems are presented and discussed. Doctor participation includes dry technique typodont, implant placement, and suturing techniques. To “bring it all together” at the end of the course, live surgeries are performed on IV sedated patients.
Mode of Instruction: This course will include lecture, slides, and video presentations of the techniques learned, and “hands-on” exercises on dry typodonts to reinforce those techniques. Observation of live surgeries suggests clinical attire (scrubs) for the second day. Bringing loupes and accompanying illumination is recommended.
Includes continental breakfast, light lunch and refreshments.
