We offer a comprehensive education program in all disciplines of implant dentistry with the latest technology available.
Digital technology promises to increase case acceptance, improve clinical predictability, elevate our patient’s experience and streamline team communication. But how does all of this actually come together? Whether you are a surgical or restorative clinician, investing in a TRIOS intraoral scanner is the critical first step in implementing digital techniques in dentistry. To realize its true potential it is necessary to learn how to combine intraoral scanning with other digital data like photography, radiology, and a variety of 3Shape software solutions.Learn More
So you’ve taken the Allograft Ring course – now what? Whether you’re using the ring regularly or you just need a refresher, this webinar is designed for clinicians who have already taken the Allograft Ring course and would like to learn more about how to maximize usage in their practice. Dr. Robert "Bob" Miller will speak for 45 mins on optimal case selection, best practices, overcoming adverse events, and how to promote the Allograft Ring. Following this live presentation, Dr. Miller will open the discussion to questions. NOTE: This webinar is only open to clinicians who have taken the course
The digital revolution in dentistry is progressing rapidly. The translation of digital technologies into the clinical field of implant dentistry has resulted in new treatment modalities at the surgical and restorative level. This three-day course is designed for clinicians and dental teams who wish to efficiently incorporate the digital work flow into their implant practices. This course will focus on the application of digital technologies in surgical and restorative implant dentistry, including digital scanners, cone beam CT scanners and 3D printers, and how the merging of CAD/CAM and CBCT data will culminate in a guided implant surgery technique and digital implant restorative techniques that can ultimately lead to an increased predictability, efficiency, and profitability in dental implant therapy. The time is now to understand how to implement digital implant dentistry into your practice.
Smile Designer®, 3Shape’s simplistic software solution to the smile makeover process, streamlines predictability and wows patient expectations. During this exciting course see firsthand the entire process of digital cosmetic case planning with 3Shape.
The ITI Curriculum is a universally standardized education curriculum aimed at dentists whoare relatively new to implant dentistry and are interested in incorporating implant dentistry into their practices. The course is a blended learning approach- including online learning modules, onsite presentations and hands-on programs that provide a broad theoretical basis in implant dentistry. These presentations provide a structured learning approach to building successively on theoretical knowledge towards clinical implementation and first-hand experience to treating patients. The course concludes with assessment and certification process, where upon completion and successfully passing the final exam, the participant will be awarded an ITI Certificate in Foundational Level Implant Dentistry. This course meets the provincial regulatory guidelines for RCDSO- with over 70 hours of restorative and surgical coursework.
This course is designed to introduce both the basic and advanced concepts and principles related to dental and oral implantology. The course will cover several topics, including historical perspectives, implant biomaterials, principles of placement, guided surgery, hard and soft tissue reconstructions, restorative principles, and maintenance. Taught by University of Kentucky College of Dentistry faculty who are experienced and renowned specialists, this course will give participants valuable skills and research-based knowledge to improve and expand their professional practice.
Simultaneous bone augmentation and implant placement is now possible using contemporary bone grafting solutions such as the allograft ring. Develop new skills to perform advanced and complex techniques using this innovative, one-step procedure. Receive training from Dr. Bernhard Giesenhagen, the inventor of the allogenic bone technique, while gaining valuable hands-on experience using an allograft ring product. Participants should be trained in complex bone grafting and implant procedures prior to attending. Priority will be given to surgical specialties.
Presenting dental treatment to patients can be uncomfortable and often quite intimidating yet is absolutely essential for the financial well-being for any dental office. So much is depending on the outcome. Many of us have been put in this role without any formal training or guidance with little or no tools at our disposal. This one day course is designed to provide an environment of education and support for staff members that are asked to present treatment to patients. Best practices will be discussed and considered, as well as ways to develop in-office protocols that will maximize your chances of success.
The maturation of the field of implant dentistry with regards to digital technology and materials has improved treatment efficiency as well as both esthetic and functional predictability. The utilization of a comprehensive and synergistic digital workflow, based on sound evidence-based principles and team communication, is one way to satisfy these demands. In a single-tooth replacement situation, the synergy workflow incorporates digital acquisition of patient data, a virtual wax-up, pre-surgical planning of the implant position followed by template and provisional fabrication through an additive or milling process, prior to initiating the surgical procedure. This two-day course will focus on the technology utilized in the synergy workflow through lectures and hands-on sessions. Participants will be given presentations that demonstrate the step-wise process followed by hands-on sessions executing the principles taught. Participants will experience the use of an intra-oral scanner, perform a digital wax-up, import a DICOM file and merge it with the wax-up, plan implant placement, design and print a surgical guide and mill a provisional. On a patient simulated model, the participant will place an implant with fully-guided surgery and deliver the implant supported provisional. All course participants will keep the hands-on model as a valuable patient education tool to be used in their practice.
Successful implant therapy involves a delicate balance between soft tissue, hard tissue, and an aesthetic and functional prosthetic component. This course will look at each of the following aspects for the provision of dental implants for your patients from the unique perspectives of periodontics, oral surgery and prosthodontics. This course includes traditional lectures covering the didactic materials, as well as a treatment planning session. The course hours include 35 hours of prosthetic instruction and 14 hours of surgical instruction.
While bone regenerative techniques to afford the clinician the opportunity to attain previously undreamt of treatment outcomes, specific protocols must be followed to ensure maximization of therapeutic results with minimization of patient morbidity. Through a combination of observation of six live surgeries, extensive lecture material, roundtable discussion, and hands-on exercises with fresh human cadavers, course participants will become well versed in the indications, contraindications, and execution of all augmentation treatment options.
