This course is a unique two-day lecture and hands-on cadaver experience. It offers the unique opportunity for each participant to learn head and neck anatomy pertinent for performing implant, oral and periodontal surgery. Each participant will learn the placement of root form dental implants in a unique step-by-step fashion, followed by seeing actual videos of these procedures. Each participant will then actually perform these procedures on freshly frozen cadavers under the direct supervision of the course instructors.
The objective of this course is to inform and assist each participant in achieving a higher level of clinical comfort with the placement of dental implants, manipulation of surgical flaps, obtaining of tension-free surgical closure and proper suture materials, and the methods to use for each of these therapies.
This course includes the fundamental biomechanics & biology of bone as well as the rationale for the diagnosis, treatment planning, and the clinical practice of placing root form dental implants. The course will also cover informed consent, pre and post-surgical considerations, possible pathways for post-surgical infection, and management of post-surgical complications.
