The rapid growth in dental implant procedures in recent years provides significant opportunities for dental practitioners to incorporate dental implants as a service offering. This course provides a thorough introduction for dentists who wish to add dental implant surgery and restoration services to the practice.
In this two-day course, patient selection, site evaluation, treatment planning, surgical anatomy, implant placement protocols and restorative options are presented and discussed.
