Basic to Intermediate Implant Surgery Course Curriculum
- Each doctor will place surgically 8-15 implants
Advanced Bone Grafting Procedures Course CurriculumEach doctor will perform 4-5 surgeries and assist his or her partner with his or her four surgeries. So each doctor is exposed to 8-10 advanced implant/bone grafting surgical procedures.
The surgeries will be selected from the following procedures:
- Sinus lifting through the lateral window
- Sinus lifting through the osteotomy site
- Maxillary Alveolar ridge expansion using split-cortical technique
- Mandibular Alveolar ridge expansion using Pedicled Sandwich Plasty (PSP)
- Connective tissue graft
- Block graft
- And just like implant placement, bone grafting participants will work on their flapping techniques, suturing techniques and will perform multiple alveoloplasty procedures.
- Lecture material and surgical DVDs are provided for bone grafting program participants before the program to enhance the learning experience
All-on-4® and Full Arch Immediate Loading Course Curriculum
This 6 days comprehensive All-on-4® and Full Arch Immediate Loading LIVE patient program cover the treatment planning, the surgical, the prosthetic and the laboratory phases of the full arch immediate load prostheses for edentulous patients and those with terminal dentition.
- Evidence-based proven protocols for the proper treatment planning for the full-arch immediate loading including treatment planning for All-on-4®
Trefoil™ is a revolutionary fixed solution for an underserved population. This concept offers the possibility for patients to receive a fixed solution at a price point, which they are more likely to be able to afford, compared to traditional treatment options. The concept will provide a larger quality of life improvement compared to treatment with an implant supported removable denture, which many of these patients might have been offered historically. “Time-to-final-teeth” will also be reduced as fewer visits are required and the final bridge is delivered on the day of surgery.
This course will present a surgical and prosthetic overview of the Trefoil™ concept with a detailed interactive hands-on workshop and Live patients surgical hand-on training. Each participant will perform one Trefoil surgery and will assist with multiple surgeries.
- Explore the concept of diagnostics and treatment options for advanced rehabilitation of the edentulous mandible.
The program is limited to 10 participants.
