The course is a continuing professional condensed educational program, comprising of structured modules in the study and training in Oral Implantology, and extending over four days.
1) Introduce dentists to Advanced Dental Implantology.
2) Enable the dentist to treat difficult cases in which dental implants may complement or enhance the oral rehabilitation of the patient.
3) Introduce the most recent surgical techniques and bone grafting as well as GBR materials related to Dental Implantology to dentists who are already placing implants.
The course is divided into four modules:
2. Hands-on sinus lifting.
3. Live demonstrations.
4. Placement of fifteen implants under supervision.
