Schedule & Curriculum
CORE Implant Training
CORE 1: Implant Tx Planning & Restorations
CORE 2: Implant Surgery & Treatment
CORE 3: Atraumatic Extraction & Bone Grafting
These sessions give doctors an understanding of what implant dentistry is capable of achieving, as well as how to evaluate the quality of the surgical prosthetic results for their patients. Current science and research is used to build the foundation by which you will make clinical choices in both surgery and prosthetic phases of treatment.
Since long-term implant supported prosthetics has a direct correlation with optimal management of occlusal forces and the degree to which those forces are magnified by the prosthetics, the biomechanical sciences and their application are extensively reviewed. Differences between the maintenance of natural teeth and implant teeth are examined as well as the differences in their maintenance protocols.
This program series is also designed as an introduction to surgery for dentists. Emphasis is placed on bringing the dentist up to speed and comfortable with incisions, flap management, closures, and controlling the surgical environment. Equipment, materials, and techniques used for these purposes will be discussed. Some of the procedures taught are atraumatic extractions, ridge maintenance grafting, augmenting minor bone defects and the placement of root form implants. All procedures will be performed with strict adherence to surgical sterility and asepsis protocols, which will be taught to attending CDA’s and their doctors.
Advanced Oral Implantology
A1: Live Implant Surgery & PRF
A2: Direct & Indirect Sinus Grafting
A3: Advanced Soft Tissue & Bone Grafting
The Pacific Institute for Advanced Dental Education’s Advanced Programs will provide the clinician with a greater surgical skill set to use in their practice. The full complement of these courses will provide the clinician with knowledge and skills to manage almost all surgical cases that present for treatment in today’s dental implant practice. In addition to the specific clinical procedures, a strong emphasis will be placed on understanding healing complication for all procedures and techniques to successfully manage those complications.
S1: Advanced Restorations
S2: Advanced Surgical Complication Management
S3: Applied Head & Neck Anatomy – Cadaver Course
