Course Objective & Goals

This is a lecture based course that also includes opportunities for hands-on participation.  It is intended to build upon the skills taught during the Intermediate and Basic Dental Implant Training Courses, and to allow participants to further advance their skills and knowledge base to tackle the most challenging types of cases.  Emphasis will be placed on site development and management, sinus lifting, special use implants, and an introduction to the challenges of implant placement in aesthetic zones.  This course will enable participant to :

  • Have a better understanding of site development (ridge enhancement and bone grafting), which procedures to handle in-office and which to refer to a specialist colleague in a team approach
  • Learn how to evaluate, diagnose and treatment plan more cases using cone beam tomography, site enhancement, and special size and shape implants
  • Develop an appreciation for the additional difficulties faced when placing implants in the aesthetic zone
  • Have an opportunity to perform clinical skills on special models
  • Understand which cases can be treated in office and which require partnering with a specialist colleague
  • Manage common clinical situations that can arise
  • Ask questions specific to clinical situations doctors have encountered
  • Use implants for overdenture anchorage
