Autotransplantation and intentional reimplantation are starting to be considered as alternative treatment approaches and are used increasingly often in clinical practice.
Although there are publications that support these treatments, there is a gap in terms of training. This course aims to offer the training required to perform autotransplantation and intentional reimplantation, and is aimed at both general dentists and specialists.
- To learn the basic foundations and clinical protocols that are supported by publications on both techniques.
- To provide dentists with the diagnostic and therapeutic tools required to perform autotransplantation and intentional reimplantation.
Competences the student will acquire
- Learning about the different treatment approaches for a dislodged tooth.
- Learning the basic concepts of dental traumatology and the consequences of traumatic avulsion.
- Chronological history of transplants and autotransplantation.
- Understanding the differences and indications inherent to autotransplantation (both open and closed apex) and intentional reimplantation.
- Learning how to choose the right technique for each clinical situation.
- Mastering the biological foundations behind both techniques.
- Analysing both classic and current publications for both techniques; prognosis, success and failure criteria, methodology and results.
- Managing and using the CBCT as a basic tool that is a requirement when planning autotransplantation.
- A full understanding of how to handle the basic instruments used in both surgical techniques.
- The application of biomaterials in the field of autotransplantation and intentional reimplantation.
- Understanding the surgical and restorative protocols for autotransplantation (both in growing and fully-grown patients) and intentional reimplantation.
