Event Content

The course is structured over four modules.

It is deliberately designed to be intense and condensed.

There are 3 teaching modules followed soon after by the surgical module.

The course is outcome based – it is strictly focussed towards equipping you to place implants in your own practice as soon after the surgical module as possible.

There will be literature and information provided and other reading material but we will not spend valuable time in conducting literature reviews.

A resume follows but please bear in mind that there may be minor changes, as the course constantly evolves and other changes may be enforced upon due to circumstances beyond our control. The content may then change and evolve but always for the better we hope.

Module one
Is theory based and includes an introduction to implants, anatomy and photography, and placement of an implant on a plastic model and impression taking.
You will learn all the components to an implant and the restorative too.


Module two
Is digital. You will be introduced to the theory and practise of digital planning, design platforms, CBCT scanning and planning and the techniques and advantages of guided implant surgery.
Included in your fee is Dr J M Radiology’s Level one CBCT/radiology course, please note this is a requirement as part of our course and paid for by Practical Implantology.
This can be completed at your own convenience online.


Module three
Is where you will cover GBR, suturing techniques, soft tissue manipulation, implant exposure, occlusion, medicolegal, periodontal considerations periimplantitis.
You will also get to fit a restoration.
The list above is not full or exhaustive. There is a lot of content.
We incorporate a lot of hands on exercises during the three modules.
All the above teaching is then directed to the surgical module.


Module four (the most exciting!)
Is where we fly to Cairo Egypt and start your implant placements on real live patients.
You will place a minimum of 5 implants each.
All cases are discussed previously and carefully selected.
You will personally place implants under the direct supervision of one of the teachers, Mukesh, Sam, and Azhar.
We will attempt to ensure that you have the benefit of each of them during this time although this is not always possible.
Further, you will assist and cooperate in a large number of other surgeries so that you overall experience is of a lot of implants.
We will attempt to give you experience of a variety of different implant sites, conditions, and situations.
There will be more than simple implant placements and often you will be called on to perform some simple GBR, bone manipulation, and sometimes even sinus lift surgery as we cannot perfectly screen the patients beforehand.
Patients will then be restored by the faculty afterwards.


Please note that you MUST have completed the three modules prior to being signed off to place implants.

If illness or other matters prevent this then you may resit a missed module and go to module four in a later cohort.
