Nobel Biocare Mentorship Program Module 1
Dr Ben Lee
INTRODUCTION TO DENTAL IMPLANTS & TREATMENT PLANNING
This interactive 3-day course will explore the biology of healing, blood supply and osseointegration relating to the interface between the implant surface and soft and hard tissues. The course will focus on pre-treatment diagnosis, identify key principals and clinical evaluations relevant to patient selection and treatment planning within implant dentistry. The participants will gain understanding of best practices in atraumatic extraction protocols and ridge preservation. Provisional restorative options and indications for their use when planning implant retained restorations will also be discussed. The participants will learn how to start the digital transformation of their practice with the introductory hands-on workshop on DTX Implant treatment planning software. This includes the fabrication of radiographic surgical templates and their use in digital or analogue treatment planning protocol. Beyond this, participants will gain understanding of basic dental photography to document cases.
This program is the first step to identifying and treatment planning simple single implants in healed sites. With a balance of didactics and hands-on exercises you will become familiar with surgical protocols, restorative components, implant impression techniques and prosthetic tooling.
This program will provide an understanding on how to improve communication with your treatment and have an overview of surgical considerations to enhance the prosthetic outcomes. With this program you will gain a clear understanding of pre and post-operative surgical procedures, as well as patient management for implant placement. Long term success of an implant begins with outstanding treatment planning and diagnosis; make this program your first step into implant therapy.
SURGICAL AND PROSTHODONTIC PROTOCOLS I
This interactive 3-day course is designed to provide an overview of the implant treatment process, with particular emphasis on surgical procedures relevant to dental implant therapy.
The participants should already have a comprehensive understanding of implant biology, clinical examination and diagnosis.
The course will provide a detailed understanding of the guided principles of implant surgery, grafting material and soft tissue management. Surgical field preparation protocol will be also be covered in-depth.
Potential surgical complications will also be discussed along with post-surgery follow up protocol.
The hands-on workshop will include implant placement and soft tissue grafting on a porcine jaw. Experience with restoration of single posterior implant is necessary, and some surgical experience will be an advantage.
SURGICAL AND PROSTHODONTIC PROTOCOLS II
This interactive 3-day course is designed
for clinicians looking to expand their dental
implant treatment to a more advanced level
including multi-unit cases and in the aesthetic
Topics covered in the program include: the
various implant placement timing protocols
(immediate, early-delay and delayed), various
loading protocols and mechanics for multiunit
cases, hard and soft tissue regeneration,
developing soft tissue profile in the aesthetic
zone, the various (screw retained) designs
of implant fixed prosthesis and how to best
communicate with the dental laboratory to
improve clinical outcome. The participants
will gain understanding of fundamental
selection criteria for implant componentry and
importance of genuine components.
This course includes a comprehensive hands-on
component including; taking splinted multiunit
implant impression, taking closed tray
impressions for the difficult single implant
posterior cases, constructing chair-side
provisional crown in the aesthetic zone and
constructing customised impression coping in
the aesthetic zone.
A dental implant surgery will be reviewed to
emphasise the most important aspects of
successful dental implant surgical treatment.
ADVANCED SURGICAL AND RESTORATIVE PROTOCOLS
This interactive 3-day course is designed for
clinicians with extensive surgical experience,
such as concepts and techniques of guided
bone regeneration, immediate implant
placement, multiple implant placement and
guided implant planning and placement.
Participants will gain a good understanding
of how to prepare a treatment plan for a full
arch or full mouth case using various dental
implant treatment modalities.
Due to the complex and expensive nature of
such treatments, this course covers identifying
pertinent risk factors and learning how to
reduce or control them.
As integral to the long-term success, longterm
maintenance and management
of complications will also be discussed.
Additionally, the use of guided surgery and
grafting to improve treatment outcomes and
long-term stability will also be covered.
The hands-on workshop includes bone
reduction, immediate implant placement in a
full arch scenario and soft tissue grafting on a
