Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement solution and of ever-increasing importance in dentistry. The procedures required may be complex, and achieving successful outcomes can be challenging. Treatment decisions made before implant placement can have a significant impact on the overall success of implant therapy. This is a practical, hands-on course designed to provide you with the basis for assessing and handling soft and hard tissues in preparation for implant placement. We will cover the pre-treatment assessment of the proposed implant site, with discussion and demonstration of the principles of flap design, soft-tissue handling, and management of extraction sites and suturing techniques, all of which are all critical to success.

Learning outcomes

This course aims to provide dentists with confidence in providing a higher level of surgical care to your patients. The skills learned in this course can be used in routine surgical dentistry and provide a framework for further professional development in areas such as bone grafting and implant placement.
