Surgical Placement of Dental Implants in Ideal and Challenging Environments
Completion of Module 2 and/or prior experience with implants is required.
This course is designed to allow the participating doctor to place a dental implant, under the supervision of the instructor that may or may not be into an ideal site. The participating 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.
Mode of Instruction
Didactic instruction on day 1 is followed by 2 days of “hands-on” surgical training. The participant will provide his/her own patient. This allows the attendee to follow the patient through completion of the restoration. Course participants are required to submit the patient records 30 days prior to the course for evaluation, treatment plan verification and a fee quote. Participation in live surgeries suggests clinical attire for the second and third day. Bringing Loupes and accompanying illumination is recommended.
Program fee: $1995, includes 1 Assistant, Each Additional Assistant $500, Includes continental breakfast, light lunch, and refreshments.
