Implant Surgery - Level 1
Sept 24-25 class will be in-person, in Utah.
Integrating implant surgery into your practice is not difficult or threatening, and it will certainly be a positive and profitable change in your professional life. You undoubtedly already have implant prosthodontics in your practice, and this course will update and enhance your prosthodontic skills. Primarily, the course emphasizes surgically placing small-diameter implants (1.8 to 2.9 mm in diameter) in edentulous and partially edentulous patients and placing conventional-diameter implants (3mm and larger in diameter) in healthy patients who do not require bone grafting.
The course includes:
- Differential diagnosis and treatment planning for small-diameter and conventional-diameter implants
- Anatomy essential for implant placement
- Equipping your office and educating your staff for implant placement
- A comparison of implant companies
- Techniques for placing implants
- Related prosthodontic materials and techniques
Both implant surgery and prosthodontics can be enjoyable parts of any dental practice after adequate education and motivation. This course provides enough information and experience for you to place and restore implants in a non-complicated patient.
