Course Overview:

This 4-hour lecture/ 4 hour hands-on course will benefit new and returning attendees of last year’s course by Dr. DiPonziano. At the previous course, Dr. DiPonziano focused on guided bone regeneration and introduced implants to attendees. This course will continue your implant placement journey. It is not necessary to have attended last year’s course in order to benefit from this course.

In the morning, Dr. DiPonziano will discuss the details of implant placement, guided vs. free-hand, single vs. multiple implants, and what to look for. This is a course to teach surgical implant dentistry for beginners to intermediates. We will also discuss implant impression techniques: scan vs. impression materials. For the more curious, the crestal approach to sinus lifts will be discussed. In the afternoon, you will get the chance to place implants into a synthetic jaw and experiment with a crestal sinus lift procedure. All supplies, implants and drills will be provided.
