Gain confidence and remove the confusion and fear of “Beyond the 3-Unit Bridge” implant cases, allowing you to treat patients more predictably and with less anxiety. Through systematic 8-days of interactive learning, you will find skills and knowledge needed in understanding vertical occlusion collapse, effect of periodontal diseases, and occlusion on complex cases.
The program includes 5 full days of intensive lectures and 3 live-surgery observations. You are expected to learn treatment planning principles in full-arch or complex cases, participate in treatment planning of live cases, and observe demonstrations of live-patient cases including surgical and restorative phases. Participants are allowed to bring their own cases for treatment planning and the actual surgery will be under direct supervision of our course instructors.

Single crowns to multiple unit bridges to implant restorations, achieving high-end restorative practice can be challenging for any dental practitioner. Especially with implant restorations, delivering predictability that exceeds patient expectations is a must for the long term success of your practice.
From simple single crown cases to full mouth reconstructions, partial and full over-dentures, implants bring additional challenges to the clinician. Understanding and controlling various factors in occlusion, provisional fabrication methods, dental restorative materials and art of treatment are critical for the successful outcome of the case.
