Course is intended for dentists who want to integrate both the surgical and restorative phase of dental implants in their daily practice. We will cover patient selection, treatment planning, and critical anatomical structures when considering dental implants. The participant will become familiar with the surgical drill kit and the flow of surgery. Step by step Implant placement principles and techniques are practiced on models. Also the course will covers the concept of Natural Implant Restoration in Stable Alveolar Bone, Implant placement with bone manipulation. Segmental osteotomies, sinus augmentation, on-lay grafts, soft tissue management, nerve lateralization and restorative principals
