Aimed at dental practitioners who would like to undertake the surgical and restorative aspects of implant treatment, on completion of the program participants will have learnt the skills to be able to place and restore straightforward dental implants.
The course covers treatment planning for implants and restorations using the participants own patients and supervised placement of implants and restorations in these patients.
Held over six modules throughout 2019 and 2020, the small group teaching is designed to give participants a premium close up teaching experience with clinical mentors.
This is an intensive course in the theory and practice of surgical and restorative implant treatment. Delivery of the program will be by lectures, seminars, hands-on exercises using surgical training kits, live surgical placement of implants and placement of implants in two patients by the participant as well as the subsequent restoration of these patients.
At the conclusion of the program participants should have
•An in-depth understanding of the biological processes of osseointegration in general.
•An in-depth understanding of surgical diagnosis, treatment planning and surgical management of simple surgical cases.
•Through a series of practical exercises and hands-on surgical training, participants should be familiar with the surgical implant placement in simple clinical situations.
•Participants will be familiar with Straumann implant componentry and the reasons why implant treatments may be useful in their practices. Participants should feel able to begin placing implants in uncomplicated clinical situations.
