Nearly all general dentists restore some implants and many would like to place the easier implants, like those in the posterior, single implants (about 70% of them), and those in the anterior without serious esthetic challenges. This series enables general dentists to identify or help create sites with sufficient bone, establish an appropriate treatment plan, place implants optimally for a good prosthetic outcome, and then successfully restore them– while applying established evidence-based surgical and restorative protocols.

After this course, you will be proficient with basic implant placement and restoration of single sites both anterior and posterior.

Basic Implantology for the General Dentist Part 1

Surgical Considerations, Planning and Techniques for Placement of Posterior and Anterior Dental Implants

The first in a series of dental implant instruction courses designed to help you differentiate between easy and hard cases to allow you to begin with the easier ones. Learn how to “build the ridge” for easier future implant cases. The course provides surgical instruction and hands-on model work focusing on the surgical aspect of implant surgery, including planning, implant location, placement and orientation. This course features 2 hours of online instruction, prior to 14 hours of in-person, hands-on instruction using lifelike models. The course focuses on these topics:

  • Case Selection, Diagnosis, Treatment Planning
  • CBCT. When would you not need a CBCT?
  • Is the case in your comfort zone?
  • Nature of implant technology. Physics and physiology.
  • Start with the end in mind.
  • Evaluation of hard tissue, soft tissue, other extenuating conditions.
    • Potential complications? Can it be managed or mitigated?
    • If the case is not ideal, can you make it more ideal? Or refer?
  • Recognizing red flags beyond your control that would necessitate referral.
  • Anatomy, patient compliance/management factors.
  • Plan details of the final prosthesis. Lab consult?
  • Placing implants in ideal positions.
    • “Best practice” techniques
    • Immediate vs. delayed placement (esthetic provisionals covered in Basic Implantology for the General Dentist Part 2).
    • Length and width of implant for molars vs. premolars, optimal emergence profile.
    • Depth of platform, relation to adjacent tooth, angulation.
    • Need for bone grafting at time of implant placement? Is it worth it, or just refer the case?
  • Surgical guides. Easiest systems with which to work.
  • 2-stage vs. 1-stage implant.
  • Determination of when can load implants.
  • Implant evaluation prior to restoration.

Objectives & Schedule

Course Objectives

  • Select patients with the conditions and characteristics that would lead to a straightforward case.
  • Treatment plan with the ideal restorative outcome in mind.
  • If necessary, enhance osseous and/or soft tissue contours.
  • Using modern and appropriate diagnostic technology, place an implant in the correct position.
  • Differentiate as to 1 vs. 2 stage or immediate placement and whether immediate provisioning or space maintenance comes into play and treat.
