|In association with the Oral and Dental Hospital, University of Pretoria||
This course will cover implant dentistry in the Straightforward category and also demonstrate cases in the Advanced SAC category, both in terms of theory and hands-on.
Participants will train on phantom heads to simulate the oral environment as closely as possible. Surgical soft tissue management will be presented through demonstrations and hands-on training on animal models (sheep’s heads). Surgical hands-on training will cover flap design, suture techniques and soft tissue grafting procedures. Hands-on management of minor hard- and soft-tissue defects will be covered on animal heads, using particulate grafting material and resorbable membranes. Prosthodontic principles of implant dentistry will be covered in detail, including principles of occlusion, bite registration, CAD-CAM prostheses and technical aspects of laboratory work. Hands-on prosthodontic training will include impression-taking, provisional prostheses and live demonstration of cases.
Participants will be tutored in detail on the pathogenesis of peri-implant and periodontal diseases, their treatment and supportive therapy. Cases will be workshopped to give delegates first-hand experience of managing such patients.
