Description


Comprehensive Implant Surgery Training Program

This course is a 4-day didactic and live patient program designed for dental professionals that would like to enhance both their surgical skills and medical management of the dental implant patient. Primary goal is to assist each participant in achieving a higher level of clinical comfort with simple and surgical extraction of teeth, design and manipulation of surgical flaps, socket grafts, membrane techniques, placement of dental implant fixtures, and proper suture techniques. Participants will perform all surgical procedures under the supervision of Surgical specialists both as primary assistant and surgeon. In addition, introduction to removal of soft tissue and partial bone impacted teeth will be included in the live patient sessions.

Program objectives:

  • Increase level of comfort with patient assessment for basic oral surgical procedures
  • Learn simple and surgical extraction techniques that preserve bone
  • Classify extraction defects and perform appropriate graft techniques for predictable results
  • Learn the proper armamentarium for leveling bone
  • Learn flap designs and suturing techniques that achieve consistent primary closure
  • Perform crestal site preparation for sinus “bump” technique
  • Apply techniques to deal with pre and post-operative infection and bleeding during primary surgical procedures
  • Place dental implants in single and multiple sites
