Dental implants and related treatments are becoming an increasingly popular treatment modality, allowing the replacement of a missing tooth or teeth, or denture stabilisation. This programme, provided by the ADI, aims to provide the dentist with a keen interest but limited experience with dental implants, a hands-on introduction to implant dentistry.

The programme, designed for both under-graduate and post-graduate students, is an interactive journey from the history of dental implants, exploring restoration and maintenance, all the way through to a forecast of the future of implantology whilst offering hands-on experience using pig heads and expert tuition throughout.

History and Introduction to Dental Implants

It is over 60 years since Professor Per Ingvar Branemark’s serendipitous discovery of a phenomenon, which he termed osseointegration. Dental implantology is now a mainstream treatment, facilitating the replacement of missing tooth roots with osseointegrated titanium implants allowing the restoration of aesthetics and function.

This section will consider the history/discovery of osseointegration and the subsequent progression from there to now in dental implantology

Clinical Options with Dental Implants

Dental implants can be used in many and varied clinical indications. They can be used to replace single teeth, short spans, or full arches providing a fixed solution. In addition to this, implants can also be used to stabilise removable prostheses, allowing improved function. It is essential, for implant success, that implants are planned with a view to the proposed restorative outcome. This section will cover the clinical options available with dental implants, detailing clinical examples.

Restoration of Bone in Dental Implantology

In order to achieve successful and lasting osseointegration, dental implants must be placed in adequate volumes of bone. Following the loss of a tooth or teeth, the bone volumes in a specific area may be less than ideas for predictable implant placement. In such cases, it is imperative to increase the bone volume either prior to or as an adjunct to implant placement. This section will cover the theory of Guided Bone Regeneration and detail clinical examples of the use of GBR in dental implant practice.

The Surgical Placement of Dental Implants

The placement of dental implants in bone is a surgical procedure. As with any surgical procedure, it is essential that specific protocols are followed to ensure successful placement and subsequent osseointegration. This section will cover the surgical placement of dental implants, detailing the factors involved in ensuring predictable, successful placement and subsequent osseointegration.

The Restoration of Dental Implants

Following successful placement of dental implants and completion of osseointegration, there are a number of clinical steps involved in restoring dental implants. This process involves impression taking and construction of the prosthesis in line with the pre-operative restorative plan and its subsequent fitting into the implant. This section will discuss and detail these steps and the various options to consider in this process.

Laboratory Procedures in Dental Implant Planning and Restoration

Dental implant treatment relies heavily upon input from, and the expertise, of the dental technician. From the planning stages through to the production of the implant prosthesis, the accurate completion of each stage is essential in order that the final prosthesis be accurate and precisely fitting. This section will discuss the various stages involved in the planning and production of dental implant restorations.

The Future of Dental Implantology

Dental implantology has advanced at a phenomenal rate following the placement of the first dental implant over 45 years ago. It is important, in any aspect of dentistry, to have an understanding of the current state of the art, but also the likely future advancements and developments and how these are likely to affect the practice of implant dentistry. This section will consider future developments, particularly in relation to digital implant dentistry, advancements in CBCT, digital impressions, CAD CAM and computer guided surgery technology and how this affects the workflow.
