Course Description

How do you set up your implant treatment for success when incorporating implant procedures into your practice? The long-term overall dental implant survival rate is high, and dental implant treatment is one of the valuable options for replacing missing teeth. On the other hand, implant treatments present various complications. It is crucial to strive to maintain peri-implant health and minimize the risk of complications. Gaining fundamental principles of dental implant procedures will assist you in approaching each case and strategizing your plan to achieve these goals. 

This course will cover basic knowledge and skills in periodontal and implant surgical procedures. With a focus on posterior implant cases, ridge preservation, guided bone regeneration, and soft tissue grafting procedures will be introduced to establish foundations around implants. Furthermore, this lecture will give an overview of complications from biological and prosthetic perspectives and discuss risks and prevention for those complications for day-by-day practice.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. Strategize a learning curve for the long-term success of implant treatment.
  2. Acquire basic knowledge and skills in implant placement, bone and soft tissue augmentation.
  3. Recognize and minimize the risks of implant-related complications.
