Course contentDental implantology is concerned with the replacement of missing teeth and supporting oral tissues with dental implants. These implants are inserted into the jawbones and support a dental prosthesis and are retained because of the intimacy of bone growth onto their surface. This programme aims to provide dental practitioners with a broad dental-implant experience.
The programme consists of assessed course units: Implant Basic Sciences; Basic Implant Surgical and Restorative Techniques; Patient Treatment Planning; Advanced Implant Surgical and Restorative Techniques and Bone Augmentation.
