The surgical phase of Implantology demands precise implant placement locations with minimal trauma to the implant recipient site and for the patient. A didactic presentation will review the pearls of implant surgery along with the pre-surgical evaluation requirements. A detailed review of the osteotomy preparation of drilling sequence will be supported and enforced with hands-on exercises.
Anatomically correct customized implant models will be used to practice and evaluate for implant placements (in all zones of the mouth) for reinforcement of principles of osteotomy preparations. Soft tissue manipulation and suturing techniques along with osteotomies will be prepared in pig’s jaws to simulate clinical settings.
Live patient demonstrations will be performed by a specialty instructor to further enhance the teaching process for the surgical phase of implant dentistry. In addition, procedural DVD’s, highlighting various surgical concepts, will be viewed by participants at the course and then copies given out for participants to bring home.
