Fundamentals of Guided Implant Surgery with Cone Beam (CI1) | 13 CE Credits

Prerequisites: None | Where Do I Start?
This course will give you the experience to utilize the Dentsply Sirona Cone Beam CT (Axeos or Orthophos) for surgical planning of implants and will help you to understand the fundamentals of guided implant surgery. Intended for clinicians who are interested in, new to, or moderately experienced with implant therapy. This two-day lecture and hands on workshop will take you from A to Z in all aspects of guided-implant planning using cone beam and the CEREC integration, as well as provide a complete understanding of all the different guided systems that are available to work with the CEREC and cone beam integration protocol. In addition to teaching the foundation for treatment planning for implant therapy using the CEREC and cone beam data, participants will learn the basics of implant placement using the guided protocol, and the advantages and disadvantages of each surgical system as well as experience in placing implants in models. In the workshop participants will learn placement techniques for simple implant cases and learn tips and techniques that result in optimal integration of the implants within the bone.

Although the concepts learned in the workshop will feature Denstply Sirona implant products for the hands on sessions, the concepts can be applied to any implant system.

It is recommended that our Implant courses are taken in order. This course is typically offered two days prior to Advanced Surgical Guided Implant Dentistry and we encourage participants to attend the courses back-to-back as part of our Training to Treatment in 4 Days program.

Staff seating is limited and on a first come, first serve basis.
