    Dental implant and related treatments are becoming an increasingly popular treatment modality, allowing replacement of a missing tooth or teeth, or denture stabilisation.

    Dental implant treatment requires careful assessment and planning, good surgical techniques and competence in the restorative aspects. In addition, monitoring and maintenance of dental implants is essential in order to ensure stability together with an ability to identify any deficiency in the peri implant tissues as early as possible.

    This course sequence will allow a general theoretical and practical introduction to dental implants for the general dental practitioner and dental hygienist/therapist with an interest in this area.

    The restoration of dental implants
    Implants should be planned and placed from a restorative viewpoint on order to allow the ideal long term solution for patients.
