Implantology is arguably the most significant discipline in dentistry at present. It has become a source of intellectual pursuit as well as patient referrals. Advances in all areas of implant dentistry are occurring at record paces. In the current medico-legal climate, it is important that all practitioners, especially those starting out in implant dentistry, become knowledgeable in all areas.
The evolution of soft and hard tissue grafting progressed from autogenous harvesting in the 1960's to allografts in the 1980's to mesenchymal stem cells around the turn of the century. Due to recent integration of biomedical engineering and clinicians, 3D printers are now used to print cells and simulate tissue regeneration ready for human transplant.
In this course, participants will learn how to choose bone graft material and apply bone grafts for predictable results. They will also become familiar with ridge augmentation, sinus augmentation, titanium mesh, membranes, and techniques for extraction socket preservation. Additional course topics include:
