Advanced Certificate in Management of  Tooth Loss: Immediate Implants vs Socket Preservation

A step-by-step roadmap to evidence-based management of tooth loss with immediate
implants & socket preservation

  • Part 1: Preparatory webinars
  • Part 2: Face-to-face skills development workshop and live surgical demonstration at ICE Hospital

This comprehensive course is designed for both beginners and experienced implant dentists who wish to expand their knowledge and clinical skills in management of tooth loss. This includes minimally traumatic extraction
techniques and socket preservation.

The course covers evidence-based techniques including our team’s published structured research and extensive clinical experience in this field. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of disuse atrophy, osseointegration and soft tissue
management as well as immediate implant placement and loading using analogue or fully digital workflows. The course also offers delegates the opportunity to develop hands-on practical experience in socket augmentation
and alveolar ridge preservation as well as immediate single implant placement and loading protocols in fresh extraction sites.
