Foundations for Advanced Implant Dentistry: translating didactics into practice
The aim of the course is to provide solid scientific foundations for evidence-based implant dentistry in relation to direct clinical applications. The clinicians will be able to implement these concepts in their daily practice, achieving continual high-quality implant dentistry and predictable treatment planning.
The course is structured in four modules and four lectures in order to provide a broad overview of the field, valuable for clinicians with different level of expertise.
TOPICS COVERED IN THE COURSE:
- Osseointegration and clinical implications;
- Implant surfaces and design: differences and evaluations;
- Immediate loading: biology and clinical decisions;
- Evaluation and management of hard and soft tissues;
- Treatment planning and implant biomechanics updated;
- Soft tissue thickness and keratinized tissue, flap management;
- Biology and microbiology of peri-implant tissues, the biofilm and differences/implications with natural dentition;
- Evaluation of peri-implant tissues: biology, homeostasis, and clinical implications;
- Prevention and management of implant failures and peri-implantitis;
- Prosthetic and surgical consideration for long term clinical success, peri-implant non-surgical treatment;
- Evidence and surgical treatment of peri-implantitis.
