Introduction to Oral Implants 1B (DENT5405)

UNIT OF STUDY

This is the foundation block for the training of dental implant related surgery. The course consists of an introductory study on the biological basis of osseointegration and bone repair and wound healing, the design of modern dental implants and the bio-mechanical principles of prosthetic construction on implant supports. Training in the practical sessions will familiarize the students with different implant systems, their technical characteristics and surgical tooling features. The clinical training will focus on the patient assessment process and protocol and the skill in developing a rational and appropriate treatment plan for the patient. Surgical placement of dental implants in non-complicated cases will be attempted during semester 2.
