Implant Dentistry: All-on-4 & Immediate Loading

A three day course that aims to provide an overview of the principles and techniques of immediate loading in single and full arch cases, including a live demonstration of an All-on-4 case.

What will I learn?

This course aims to give the experienced implantologist an overview of current thinking in the field of implant planning, immediate placement and restoration, alongside treatment planning and options to explore the full arch restoration and All-on-4 technique. This serves as an excellent step towards further postgraduate training in implant therapy.

Why should I study this course at the Institute?

The course is led and taught by experienced specialist prosthodontists who have been placing and restoring implants in practice for many years and have experience of having carried out over 200 All-on-4 procedures.  With experience of training dentists to provide implant treatment as part of the Institute's Implant Dentistry PG Dip, the friendly and approachable staff are well positioned to support participants in this advanced area of dentistry.  State-of-the-art audiovisual and skills lab facilities are able to fully support and enhance participants' training.

Availability: Three day course

Verifiable CPD: 21 hours

Teaching and learning

The morning sessions are structured to give interactive seminars on the theoretical aspects of dental implants. The seminars are supplemented with videos of live clinical cases to highlight key stages in treatment.

In the afternoon hands-on sessions, implant placement and provisional restoration fabrication are demonstrated. The participant is then able to practice these skills under close supervision.

Each session is packed with practical clinical tips, which can be applied to implant dentistry as well as the wider field of restorative dentistry.
