This two-day course will cover the 'All-on-4' concept from start to fitting of a provisional prosthesis in one day, including all lab stages.
It's designed to enable dental implant surgeons to diagnose and provide an immediate functional and aesthetic tooth replacement with predictability.
During the course you'll:
- become familiar with the history and principles of the All-on-4 technique
- understand the principles of treatment planning an All-on-4 case
- see and become familiar with the planning stages for an All-on-4 procedure
- see the surgical placement and immediate loading of a single jaw
- understand the use of CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) in diagnosis and planning
- see the use of guided surgery to aid implant placement
- see the surgical and restorative stages for the All-on-4 procedure
The course is run by the UCL Eastman Dental Institute in London which has a broad range of continuing professional development (CPD) short courses. These provide hands-on training from experienced staff in dedicated facilities.
The course will cover the following:
- Patient assessment, basic implant science
- Implant planning for immediate placement and loading
- Implant treatment sequence
- Hands-on implant placement on specially designed models and restoration
- Hands-on implant provisional for single unit
- Theory of immediate loading for single to full arch including the All-on-4 technique
- Live surgery demonstrating the All-on-4 technique
By the end of the course you should be able to select suitable cases and plan each one for a fixed, highly aesthetic, functional and immediate tooth replacement.
