Dental implants are an excellent tooth replacement solution and of ever-increasing importance in dentistry. The procedures required may be complex, and achieving successful outcomes can be challenging. Treatment decisions made before implant placement can have a significant impact on the overall success of implant therapy.  

This is a practical, hands-on course designed to provide you with the basis for assessing and handling soft and hard tissues in preparation for implant placement. We will cover the pre-treatment assessment of the proposed implant site, with discussion and demonstration of the principles of flap design, soft-tissue handling, and management of extraction sites and suturing techniques, all of which are all critical to success.  

Topics include

  • Assessment of soft tissue biotypes

  • Clinical and radiographic assessment of hard tissue for implant placement

  • Pre-operative planning for tooth extraction

  • Principles and techniques for minimally invasive tooth extraction

  • Assessment of the extraction site for healing

  • Merits of ridge preservation

  • Considerations in the timing of implant placement 

  • Decision making in soft and hard tissue augmentation

  • Soft tissue handling at the time of tooth extraction and implant placement

  • Suturing techniques for predictable wound closure and healing

Learning Objectives

This course aims to provide dentists with confidence in providing a higher level of surgical care to your patients. The skills learned in this course can be used in routine surgical dentistry and provide a framework for further professional development in areas such as bone grafting and implant placement.
