Hands-on Implant Placement and Restoration on Cadavers Course

Oct 31 - Nov 2, 2014

This course is developed to enable the clinician to acquire the knowledge and confidence to perform advanced implant placement and restoration in the maxilla & mandible.

The program will cover surgical anatomy, pre & post surgical considerations, key steps to performing successful bone grafting and complex implant placement. Evaluation of the sinus will include the presence of abnormal anatomy, height, and width.

A review of implant prosthetics and material selection will improve the attendees’ ability to plan and execute complex reconstruction. Immediate implant placement with immediate provisionalization and final impressions, mandibular implant surgery and conversion of a full denture to a fixed hybrid will be performed on models and cadavers. By having a thorough understanding of these advanced implant procedures, the clinician should be able to improve their success of implant supported prosthetics, as well as increasing esthetic results for patients. Each participant will learn in a unique step-by-step fashion, followed by performing each of these procedures on freshly frozen cadavers and models under the direct supervision of the course faculty.

Topics Covered:

-Surgical workup – radiology, models, stents radiographic interpretation – maxilla, mandible, extraoral structures
