Event Details

The Exciting Possibilities with Minimally Invasive Implantology (In-person course)

4 CEU, Core • $159 Member Price

A large patient population is missing a critical tooth, and the days of placing a bridge or partial denture are beginning to go by the wayside. As seen by the growing market of implants, patients are actively seeking tooth replacement therapy. Minimally invasive treatments have tremendous appeal to patients as seen in many aspects of dentistry from aesthetics, endodontics and now implants. This course will provide the rationale and hands-on experience of new standards in minimally invasive implantology. The new standards minimize the needs for flaps and sutures and grafts. Minimally invasive treatment helps promote the longevity of the implant by maximizing the soft tissue healing. If you do not place implants this will be a great place to begin. If you do already place implants this will provide you with another option for less invasive surgery that leads to faster recovery and better longevity of the implant.

Learning outcomes:

  • Attendees will see the potential and the value of learning about minimally invasive implantology, and how to select the proper cases.
  • Attendees will learn the rationale for implants designed to be minimally invasive.
  • To experience the surgical protocols on models that demonstrate the placement of implants in normal ridges, sloped ridges, and how to handle the sinuses using the new minimally invasive sinus lifting method.
  • Be comfortable responding to patient questions regarding minimally invasive treatment options.
