To give delegates the knowledge, confidence and skill set to treat patients with missing teeth with dental implants.
The course gives a very prominent role to practical teaching as well as theoretical aspects. Practical training involves both hands-on sessions and live surgery. Hands on training on models is provided covering drilling protocols, flap design, suturing, socket grafting and bone augmentation.
A key component of the course is that patients are provided initially and students will treat patients from start to finish under one-to-one supervision at Guy’s Dental Clinic, gaining essential skills and knowledge of real implantology. Participants are encouraged to bring their own patients to gain further experience and any patients treated on the course will pay a reduced fee.
There are 12 lecture days over a one year period. In depth teaching will cover implantology from single tooth to full arch restorations, principles of bone grafting, cone-beam CT scanning and 3D implant planning, Guided Surgery and CAD/CAM implantology. The course is held between Guy’s Dental Clinic and lecture facilities in Cardiff city centre. The course is limited to a maximum number of participants to give an optimum level support to each person.
After The Course: Ongoing mentoring is provided on planning and treatment of more complex cases. You are encouraged to continue bringing your own patients for treatment in order to:
* Gain further confidence through greater experience * Utilise CBCT and 3D planning techniques and facilities * Gain experience of using Guided Pilot and Fully Guided Surgery techniques * Develop bone grafting skills, e.g socket grafting, simultaneous grafts and block grafts * Treat more complex implant cases
