ITI Education Week Toronto
Best Practices in Implant Dentistry
October 19 - 22, 2016


In association with Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital/
University of Toronto

Course Information

Using a lecture and case-based format, this four-day program aims to broaden the participants' knowledge and approach to the management of dental implant therapy at the advanced/complex level. The curriculum emphasizes recommended clinical procedures originating from the 2013 5th ITI Consensus Conference. The course begins with an introduction to new trends in treatment planning in dental implantology, followed by practical and evidence-based guidelines for analysis of risk and treatment planning, stepwise demonstrations of surgical and prosthodontic protocols, up-to-date analyses of adjunctive surgical procedures, provision of insight into how to time treatment in the context of the growing individual, as well as tips for troubleshooting and strategies for preventing and dealing with complications. Content is delivered through lectures and multiple case histories and discussion between participants and faculty. Surgical and prosthodontic procedures are transmitted live and in video format, including CT-assisted computer-guided surgery simulation to allow participants to fully understand and practice what they have seen and learned.
