Day 2 will present a lab based implant placement. additional lectures and one live patient treatment. For the lab portion of this exercise, we will use a plastic model to place two implants in the anterior mandible. We will go over the drilling equipment and the surgical instrumentation so that everyone can be comfortable with the surgical protocols of dental implant placement. We will discuss locating the ideal position for the placement of dental implants and we will discuss techniques necessary for protecting vital structure such as the mandibular nerve and the various blood vessels in the area.
The lecture material will be relative to the procedures you will be doing both days. There might be some article or additional literature to discuss. The idea is for the entire team to feel confident and knowledgeable with the entire procedure.
Once again, there will be a full discussion of the events of the day and questions will be dealt with.
