This mini-residency will address basic concepts for dental implantology treatment for the general practitioner. Principles discussed will include basic concepts of patient evaluation and planning, including medical history evaluation, pharmacologic treatment, treatment planning and radiology assessment. Dental implant surgical protocols and techniques will be covered, including bone augmentation and techniques for ridge preservation. Attendees also will be exposed to peri-implant disease complications, treatment and periodontal maintenance principles. A one-hour lunch break will be provided during this course each day each day. Attendance is limited to 16.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • understand oral implantology treatment planning concepts.
  • evaluate medical diagnoses, medication and health components of patients for dental implant treatment.
  • identify critical anatomical structures for surgical implant treatment planning.
  • recognize the importance of radiology and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in implantology treatment planning.
  • locate anatomical structures seen in dental CBCT radiographs to avoid critical structures during surgery.
  • select appropriate implant size(s) for anatomical positions in treatment planning.
  • distinguish potential implant site and hard-tissue evaluation to indicate necessity for bone augmentation.
  • apply principles of regeneration and products used for periodontology and oral implantology.
  • recognize the significance of alveolar ridge preservation following dental extraction and clinical outcomes without regeneration techniques.
  • select biologics that are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
  • use membranes for guided bone regeneration and guided implant regeneration. 
  • differentiate the classifications of peri-implant mucositis and peri-implantitis.
