This unit provides students studying at the postgraduate level with clinical and evidence-based information on surgical and prosthodontic procedures for oral implant care. Students will learn the importance of clinical data and analysis of success and failures. They will recognise complications both surgically and restoratively as well as possible aetiology and treatment. There should be an understanding that osseointegration and its stability is multi-factorial and dependent on various biological and microbiological processes.
