Mini Implants – from Graft to Denture

Oct 16-17, 2015

This two-day mini implant placement seminar will teach you the fundamentals of the Small Diameter Implant (SDI). You will learn patient selection, treatment planning, guided hard and soft tissue regeneration, surgical procedure of SDI placement and the restorative steps to case completion.

This workshop consists of both lecture and practical application using anatomical models. The hands-on component utilizes anatomical models and will feature bone grafting and membrane selection, surgical placement of the mini implants, prosthetic protocol, final impression, and denture modification. You will perform every step from graft to denture in this course!

This class stresses the value of the SDI technology and supports a clear understanding of the role of the mini implant. At the end of the course, participants should be able to maximize success with the SDI and to knowledgeably introduce this new approach to implant dentistry into their practice.
