Basic Continuing Education Implantology Course

This multi-system Comprehensive Implantology Course is designed to guide dental practitioners to incorporate implant treatment safely and confidently into their practices. The course is designed to include the various aspects of implant treatment, from patient selection to treatment planning, surgical placement and prosthesis construction. Throughout the previous courses, alterations and improvements in the theoretical and clinical parts of the course have been performed in order to maximize the benefit and improve the skills of participants.

The course targets dental practitioners and those who have attended introductory courses but wish to update their knowledge and gain practical experience in this revolutionary branch of dentistry.

After completion of the course, participants should be able to confidently place and restore implants in their practices.

  • Course Outline

  • Lectures : mainly intended for practitioners who are already practicing dental implants. The course will take the practitioner all the way through advanced surgical and prosthetic cases both theoretically and practically.
  • Live Surgeries : Live step by step demonstration of implant placement in a patient will be performed. Live steps of prosthetically restoring the patient will also be performed.
  • Hands-On Training : In hands on training sessions the participant will be trained to perform:
    • Radiographic interpretation.
    • Ridge mapping procedures.
    • Surgical guide preparation.
    • Different types of flaps and suturing techniques.
    • Step by step implant placement in prepared bone specimens.
    • Different impression techniques.
    • Abutment selection and prosthesis construction (laboratory and clinical steps).

  • Clinical Training : Candidates are required to place at least one implant that will be provided by the course (included in the course fees). Implants will be placed and restored under supervision from the course team.
