Description

Many general dentists want to place implants but unless your surgical expertise is up to par, it is impossible to do it well. This course makes sure you are good at “surgical extractions” before undertaking the responsibility of dental implants.

After this course, you will be proficient with basic implant placement and restorative single site and posteriors. Click the images below for instructor bios.

More and more patients are seeking implants. Many general dentists have asked, “What do I need to know and what skills do I need to develop?”

The Koerner Center provides a comprehensive series of courses that will prepare you to provide your patients with the standard of care when it comes to implants.

The first steps require a working knowledge of dental surgical procedures.

The Koerner Center program includes:

  1. Dental Surgery for General Dentists
  • KCSI Continuum 1:
    • Advanced Surgical Extractions: Become Very Proficient with Exodontia
      • 8 hours online, on-demand instruction
      • 14 hours of hands-on, interactive sessions with lifelike dentiform models (Currently conducted over Zoom, but eventually in-person)
    • Patient-treatment courses available: Co-sponsored with the Washington AGD in Seattle, WA
    • Ready yourself for implants by becoming better, faster, more comfortable with Surgical Extractions.
      • Diagnosis and treatment planning, minimal force-minimal bone loss.
      • Remove difficult teeth quickly and easily. Predictably.
      • Preserve the implant site bone with atraumatic extractions.
      • Learn to manage soft tissue. Includes 30-second flaps and 40-second sutures.
      • Remove bone only as needed quickly and safely. Section, luxate, remove one molar root at a time if needed, use PDL troughing to minimize forces.
      • Prepare yourself for doing implants and easier third molar impactions.

  1. Basic Implantology for General Dentists (Implantology 1)

This course of study includes instruction in implant location, orientation competency with posterior single sites. Includes placement on life-like models.

  • 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 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 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.

Course Overview

  • 4 hours of online, on-demand instruction. Presented in full motion, high-definition video emulating the classroom experience.
  • 14 hours of hands-on, interactive sessions practicing procedures on lifelike dentiform models, under the supervision of Koerner Center instructors.
  1. Restoration of well placed, healthy implants (Implantology 2)

Latest Restorative Options and Techniques

  • Time at which to uncover/restore
  • Evaluation of implant health and options if not healthy.
    • ISQ, radiographic, visual
  • Soft/hard tissue techniques on uncovering to maximize bone and attached tissue
  • Coordination with the lab
    • Screw vs. cement retained (pros and cons)
    • Impression techniques – conventional and digital, open/closed tray
    • Abutment types. How to determine and manage
      • Stock vs. custom abutment,
    • Anticipated occlusal load (along with parafunctional habits), size of the crown, occlusal contacts (centric, lateral excursions), need for night guard
  • Provisional prostheses – with immediate placement or at uncovering
    • Esthetic or no need for high esthetics. Emergence contours
    • How to do in a timely way, staff involvement, lab involvement

Course Overview

  • 4 hours of online, on-demand instruction. Participate in these course segments at your own pace and on your own schedule. Learn to maintain hard and soft tissue health, minimize connectivity challenges and maximize esthetics.
  • 14 hours of hands-on interactive sessions practicing procedures on lifelike dentiform models, under the supervision of Koerner Center instructors.

Part 1

This course of study includes instruction in implant location, orientation competency with posterior single sites.

Nearly all general dentists restore implants and many would like to place the easier implants, like those in the posterior, single implants (about 70% of them), and those without serious esthetic challenges. This course 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 it – while applying established evidence-based surgical and restorative protocols.

Outline

  • 4 hours of online, on-demand instruction. Presented in full-motion, high-definition video emulating the classroom experience.
  • 14 hours of hands-on interactive sessions practicing procedures on lifelike dentiform models, under the supervision of Koerner Center instructors.

Dates:

  • June 18-19 (Friday/Saturday)
  • August 27-28 (Friday/Saturday)

You do not need to commit to a date at this time. A Koerner Center representative will be in touch to work with you in determining the date that best fits your schedule.

Course Objectives:

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

CE Hours: 18.0
AGD Subject Code: 690 Implants

Part 2

When an implant is placed properly with no predispositions for complications and is in the proper position for restoration, this makes the restoration easier to complete. Dr. Jordan Davis reviews, teaches, then oversees participants’ hands-on work to master provisioning, impressions, and fabrication of the final prosthesis. It requires close communication with skilled lab technicians who partner in the process.
