Implant Treatment Planning 1 - DENT5021

Year - 2020

This unit aims to provide students at the postgraduate level details of clinical decision-making and evidence-based information on implant treatment planning. This includes the selection of implant designs and the appropriate position of the implants to aid in the provision of the final restoration. Students will diagnostically plan the restoration and through the use of radiographic and surgical guides provide the ideal position of the implant. They will also make decisions in the various placement and loading protocols. Computer based software would be used to aid in treatment planning.
