CPD Accreditation: 56 CPD points

Course Description

This course is designed to introduce basic, as well as advanced concepts and principles related to dental and oral implantology. Starting from historical perspectives, implant biomaterials and principles of placement; hard and soft tissue reconstruction and maintenance, treatment of complications, contradictory theories and the latest clinical advancements are among the topics included.

Course Objectives

1) Full introduction to dental implantology
2) To enable dentists to recognise clinical situations in which dental implants may complement or enhance the oral rehabilitation of the patient
3) Introduce through interpretation of CBVT and OPG, the modern techniques and materials related to dental implantology, with live surgery -allowing attendees to place implants in patients provided by the training centre
4) To provide support for the dentists after completion of the training course.

Course Duration

The course is a continuing professional ‘condensed’ education programme, comprising of structured modules in the study and training of oral implantology, extending over five days.

Course Contents

The course is divided into three modules:

1. Lectures
2. Hands-on: Implant placement, prosthetic training and sinus lifting (simulation).
3. Surgical training: Each participant will place 8 implants under supervision. Additional implants may be placed at a minimal cost.
