In this three-day course, participants will have the opportunity to receive implant training from skilled TUSDM clinicians, and to conduct surgeries on cadavers under experienced supervision. Due to the highly-intensive nature of implant surgery, the hands-on portion of this course will be restricted to a limited number of participants, though additional attendees are welcome to participate in the lecture-only portion of the course.
Day One of the course will include didactic lectures on diagnosis, treatment planning, surgical techniques for implant placement, and advanced techniques with bone grafting and peri-implant tissue management. Dentists seeking an overview of implant treatment are welcome to attend this day of the course alone, or in concert with the following hands-on sessions.
Day Two of the course will consist of hands-on instruction of surgical and prosthetic training, which will take place in TUSDM's state-of-the-art Simulation Clinic. Participants will be walked through the various steps necessary in order to prepare for and execute the placement of an implant, and will have the opportunity to ask questions of both surgical and prosthodontic specialists. This session is an excellent introduction to hands-on implant placement, and is also a helpful review for individuals who have placed implants in the past.
Day Three of the course will focus on a wide variety of implant and implant-related surgeries, including flap design, socket preservation, sinus lifts and ridge augmentation surgeries performed on cadavers. Participants will have an opportunity to practice these procedures on cadavers, with hands on demonstration and assistance by experienced surgical faculty.
