Cirurgia Avançada en Implantologia i Regeneració Òsea. Curs Teòric-Pràctic en Model Cadàver
Implant treatment is able to recover the aesthetics and function of missing teeth as well as the tissue surrounding them.
Thanks to scientific advances, modern implantology has been able to increase the quality of treatment offered to the patient and reduced the time span of the therapy, minimising morbidity while under treatment and improving the aesthetic results of the restorations.
Nevertheless, the clinician often encounters cases with a limited amount of available bone which complicates the performance of implant treatments.
Knowledge of advanced implantology and periodontal techniques designed to increase the availability of bone and soft tissue offers the clinician the ability to tackle more complex clinical cases and, on the other hand, significantly improve the results across all cases that fall within the usual clinical ambit. For this reason, being able to manage such techniques has become virtually indispensible.
The aim of the course is to provide dentists and maxillofacial surgeons with the theoretical and above all practical capacity to perform bone and soft tissue reconstruction techniques as well as the most advanced implant surgery.
Competences the student will acquire
- In-depth knowledge of the surgical anatomy of the maxilla-facial area
- Knowledge of the surgical techniques for fitting implants in cases with limited availability of bone by using techniques to augment bone and soft tissue.
- The ability to diagnose and treat gingival recession using advanced flap and rotary techniques associated with connective tissue grafts.
- The ability to apply this knowledge in practice.
