This is the foundation block for the knowledge and training related to dental implants and dental implant surgery. The course consists of an introductory study on the biological basis of osseointegration, bone repair and wound healing, the design of modern dental implants and the bio-mechanical principles of prosthetic construction on implant supports. Furthermore, implant maintenance and complications associated with dental implants will be discussed. Training in the practical sessions will familiarize the students with different implant systems, their technical characteristics and surgical tooling features. The clinical training will focus on implant maintenance, the patient assessment process and protocol and the skill in developing a rational and appropriate treatment plan for the patient. Surgical placement of dental implants in non-complicated cases will be attempted during semester 2. Regular journal clubs, seminars and workshops are held to critically evaluate the current literature and to gain the theoretical background required. Didactic instruction in this course complements clinical activities.

This course provides an evidence-based foundation in anatomy, histology and physiology of periodontal tissues; aetiology and pathogenesis of periodontal diseases. Additionally in the examination, diagnosis, classification, prognosis, prevention, treatment planning, staging of treatment; and in non-surgical periodontal therapy including supportive periodontal therapy. A focus of this year will be the oral biofilm including specific periodontal pathogens, mechanical and chemical biofilm control as well as modifying/risk factors (i.e. behavioral/life style factors, endodontic factors, occlusal factors, inflammation, immunology) and wound healing. Towards the end of the year, the students will be introduced to the basic techniques and materials of periodontal surgery. Regular journal clubs, seminars and workshops are held to critically evaluate the current literature and gain the theoretical background required.

This course consists of intensive training in advanced techniques of implant placement in advanced/complex and interdisciplinary cases. It also emphasizes the development of skills for treatment planning complex reconstruction cases; including the use of computerized tomography scanning and computer-assisted implant surgical planning. Clinical skills in the management of surgical complications will also be developed. One focus of the 3rd year is on the impact of different implant lengths, implant diameters and staging procedures on implant survival and success. Another focus is on high-risk patients for implant placement and their management. Contemporary issues and controversies in implantology will be covered in a series of seminars. Regular journal clubs, seminars and workshops are held to critically evaluate the current literature and gain the theoretical background required. Didactic instruction in this course complements clinical activities.
Students may be required to attend classes at multiple locations.
