2014 Implant Courses



Dental Implants & Soft Tissue Management: 22 November 2014

Dental implants are a rapidly expanding component of dental practice. Once placed, dental implants require ongoing maintenance to ensure health and longevity of these restorations. Poor oral hygiene can result in disease of the peri-implant tissues such as peri-mucositis and peri-implantitis.

Peri-implantitis is one of the leading causes of implant failure and long-term prevention is paramount. Oral Health Therapists and Hygienists need to be able to identify potential problems and know how to deal with them appropriately. In most cases peri-implant disease can be avoided though proper oral hygiene instruction, the use of specific oral hygiene products and well-structured maintenance program. A significant void presently exists within the dental community on how to identify and manage basic problems associated with peri-implant tissues.

Implant Prosthodontics Workshop: 24 - 25 November 2014

This two-day workshop has been designed for clinicians who have basic training and clinical experience in implant restorative dentistry. This course will improve their knowledge and practical expertise before taking on more complex cases.

Upon completion of this course the clinician will have enhanced knowledge in the principles and practicalities of the prosthodontic management of a variety of cases, in addition to a deeper understanding of how to achieve more predictable results.

The program is an intensive, small group experience with numerous practical sessions to familiarise participants with a range of treatment options and componentry choices. The full range of current restorative options available for single tooth and partially edentulous cases will be discussed in detail during the hands-on abutment selection workshop.

There will be discussions on management of complications during treatment and appropriate protocols for implant maintenance at the completion of a case. Participants are encouraged to bring relevant patient records from their own practices for use in case assessment and treatment planning sessions. These records can be potential, current or completed implant cases. Surgical management topics will be discussed on request.

Pre-requisite: attendance at an approved hands-on introductory implant training, such as the Continuing Education in Dentistry program Osseointegrated Dental Implants - Surgical and Prosthodontic is mandatory.
