DENT 3123 - IMPLANTS IN DENTISTRY

[20 Credits]
In this course the clinical concepts important to assure long-term success will be thoroughly discussed. These include, but are not limited to, treatment planning, occlusion, force transfer, maintenance and esthetics, restorative options for the completely edentulous and the partially edentulous patient. It also has a focus in the restoration of single-unit restorations and the 2-implant-supported overdenture. Included in the course are hands-on laboratory sessions to familiarize the student with several implant systems and the use of the various components in clinical practice when treating a single-unit and a 2-implant-supported overdenture. The clinical rotation will complement all aspects of this course. It will introduce the students to the different restorative options and techniques presently used in implant dentistry. It will also provide the students with a thorough exposure to the different techniques for implant maintenance. (A multidisciplinary faculty from the departments of oral and maxillofacial surgery, periodontics and prosthodontics will teach this course.)
